A good starting point is the national parks of India and the tiger reserves, which are among the most beautiful places in India. Many of these Indian attractions are called interchangeable national parks or tiger reserves. That is why we have placed those who are particularly known to see tigers under the tiger reserve section. But rest assured, these parks are also home to many other wild animals.
JIM CORBETT NATIONAL PARK (UTTARAKHAND)
Originally established in 1936 as Hailey National Park, Jim Corbett National Park is part of the larger Corbett Tiger reserve, although the names are often used interchangeably. Corbett is located in the Nainital region, Uttarakhand, and is the oldest and most prestigious national park in India. It is, of course, one of the most sought-after destinations in India for animal lovers, with more than 650 species of wild animals registered there.
KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK (ASSAM)
Founded in 1908, Kaziranga is one of the best national parks in the East Indies, famous for its population of Indian rhinos. This UNESCO World Heritage site is believed to be home to two-thirds of the world’s largest population of unicorn rhinos. It was also declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006 and is currently home to one of the highest densities of Bengal tigers in a protected area.
NAGARHOLE NATIONAL PARK (KARNATAKA)
The name originally comes from Nagarahole and means “Cobra River” in Kannada, the national language. But don’t worry: the name refers to the number of streams, rivers, and waterfalls that fill the park, rather than the fearsome reptiles themselves. Nagarhole is a beautiful place widely recognized as one of the best national parks in India. It is bordered by the Bandipur Tiger Reserve and is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve.
SUNDARBANS NATIONAL PARK (WEST BENGAL)
The Sundarbans were declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1987 and are not only a tiger reserve but also an essential element of the protection of the entire delta region. Despite the healthy Population here, tiger sightings are rare, as most of them retreat to the inaccessible interiors of mangrove systems.
Although there have been rare matters when tigers have struck people in villages, as the human population invades their territory more and more, the animals are usually quite shy.
THE VALLEY OF FLOWERS, THE NATIONAL PARK (UTTARAKHAND)
The starting point of the hike to the Valley of Flowers is Joshimath, accessible by road from Haridwar, Rishikesh, or Dehradun. From Joshimath, the village of Pulna can be reached by road in about an hour. From the village, it is a 16-kilometer hike to the “base camp” of Ghangaria. From there it is still 3 kilometers to the beginning of the main valley, where the flowers are located.
