As popular as India is for its vibrant destinations, architectural wonders, and delicious food, it is equally enthralling for its nature and wildlife. Thanks to the varied landscape and climatic conditions, many ecosystems exist which serve as the perfect habitat for many mammals, reptiles, and birds. Most of these species are protected under Wildlife Sanctuaries or National Parks and have seen many generations in the Indian forests. India is known for its rich biodiversity and is home to many unique species which exist only in India – the Royal Bengal Tiger, the Asiatic Lion, the Greater One-horned Rhinoceros, the White-footed Fox, and the Asiatic Elephant amongst others.
With over a hundred national parks to choose from, a wildlife sojourn in India is a bucket-list item. It doesn’t matter whether you are travelling to the north, south, east, or west of India, each state in India has a national park or a wildlife sanctuary which must be included in your itinerary. A vacation in Indian forests could be one of the most cherished experiences for visitors.
Since national parks are protected areas, open as sustainable eco-tourism hotspots for tourists, it is important to have certain rules for the welfare and safety of animals as well as visitors. Although each national park has its own set of rules, most of them are common across all protected areas. While these are the suggested rules, they are not as strict as punishable which makes the visitors ignore and flaunt them. But it is highly recommended to follow these rules. This blog is the perfect guide to a national park in India with the do’s and don’ts to follow for a memorable trip.
