You don't need to go through any sort of a map to check out the wildlife sanctuaries and nature parks that are situated within India. Indian Wildlife Sanctuaries are still known as the best bet when it comes to witnessing the most exquisite wildlife existing in the world. The steep valleys with rich forests, spectacular pools and rapids provide an ideal opportunity to revive adventurous spirits and to enjoy some of the best nature travel destinations.

Himalayan Wildlife
The highest mountain ranges in the world and geologically speaking, the youngest, the Himalayas offer some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. The western and eastern sectors of these lofty mountains have distinct differences in vegetation and wildlife.
Vegetation also varies with altitude and ranges from the tropical and sub tropical forests of the foothills, the temperate forests and alpine meadows of the higher reaches, to the high altitude deserts in Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh.

Tiger Trails of Rajasthan
Though known as a desert state, Rajasthan has excellent wildlife retreats.
The two fine tiger reserves at Ranthambore and the magnificent bird sanctuary at Bharatpur are easily accessible from Delhi.

The Land of the Rhino
A few centuries ago, the Indian one horned rhinoceros ranged across the northern Indian plains, in the wetlands of the rivers Indus, Ganga and the Brahmaputra. Today, this survivor from prehistoric times is found only in pockets in the north-eastern state of Assam and in Nepal.
In Assam, their habitat is limited to the two National Parks - Kaziranga and Manas. While Kaziranga National Park, along the main highway between Jorhat and Guwahati, is easily visited, the Manas Reserve in the foothills of the Himalayas is more remote.

Eastern Habitats and Wildlife in North East
A few centuries ago, the Indian one horned rhinoceros ranged across the northern Indian plains, in the wetlands of the rivers Indus, Ganga and the Brahmaputra. Today, this survivor from prehistoric times is found only in pockets in the north-eastern state of Assam and in Nepal.
In Assam, their habitat is limited to the two National Parks - Kaziranga and Manas. While Kaziranga National Park, along the main highway between Jorhat and Guwahati, is easily visited, the Manas Reserve in the foothills of the Himalayas is more remote.

Kipling's Country of Tigers
In Madhya Pradesh, one can see the forests immortalized by Rudyard Kipling in his Jungle Book - the home of Balu, Bagheera and Mowgli.
The National Parks here preserve pockets of what were once splendid forests that extended across Central India.

Wild West India
Gujarat has splendid wildlife reserves that are quite out of the ordinary. The Gir National Park is where the last surviving population of the Asiatic lion is to be found and the Little Rann of Kutch, the home of the Indian wild ass.

Southern Jungles & Sanctuaries
South of the Vindhyas, the southern states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala are all noted for their fine wildlife sanctuaries. The forests in South India survive mainly along the Western Ghats - a range of fairly high hills that run parallel to the west coast.
A cluster of protected areas that lie adjacent to one another in the states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, form a large conservation area in the Western Ghats - the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. In Andhra Pradesh, located in the arid interior of the ancient Deccan Plateau, are pockets of dry deciduous forests.
