Kanha National Park- Jungle of Wonder and Adventure
Kanha National Park is first on our list. Have you ever wondered or imagined a place with dense woodlands with many animals– from big cats to small birds? Are you Imagining jungle Book now? If it’s a yes then let me tell you Sir Rudyard Kipling wrote The Jungle Book with the landscape and forests of Kanha National Park in mind. The plethora of mighty tigers inspired him to create the character of Sher Khan.
Kanha was by no doubt one of the first Tiger Reserves to work with Project Tiger, having been established as a sanctuary in 1933, a National Park in 1955, and finally a Tiger Reserve in 1973. The rumors are that Kanha got its name from the texture of the soil found in this place– Kanhar.

Khajuraho – The Land of Architectural Marvels
The city is known for its number of religious temples. Khajuraho’s art is a manifestation of the essence of Indian aesthetic philosophy. Khajuraho’s sculptures depicting the Kama Sutra are the only historical erotic stone carvings included in UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
These sculptures, which represent Indo-Aryan architecture, are carved on stones to reflect the Chandela dynasty’s passion and immense appreciation for the forbidden art in the land of Kama Sutra. And the temple also has many idols of God and Goddess of the Hindu religion, so it will be disagreeable to consider them just some mere sexual carvings.

Panna National Park – The Hidden Treasure of Madhya Pradesh
In 1994, the Panna National Park was designated as a tiger reserve. It is by no doubt one of the most famous destinations in Madhya Pradesh. This national park in Vindhyan Hills covers an area of 542 square kilometers and is home to a dynamic dry deciduous forest. The park is home to some magnificent waterfalls that add a sweet taste and music to the fresh air. Aside from impressive species of flora, the park is also home to a diverse range of fauna, including the Royal Bengal tiger and over 200 species of migratory and resident birds. The park’s scenic beauty, in the form of lush green valleys and gurgling waterfalls, makes it an excellent location for landscape photography and is a heaven for nature photographers.
Pench National Park – The Ultimate Wilderness Destination
Pench National Park is a well-known destination located in Central India’s southern Madhya Pradesh sharing borders with Maharashtra. The need to protect the tigers in the area led to the creation of the Pench Wildlife Sanctuary, which was later designated as a National Park in 1983 and a Tiger Reserve in 1992. The place possesses a variety of wildlife species including different flora and fauna. During the day a walk or a safari in Pench is a wonderful experience but we will recommend opting for the night for these activities as the forests, animals and those exotic street lamps give up the most scenic views. Night safaris are only conducted in the Wolf Sanctuary Zone. Although there are numerous ways to get to Pench, flying to Nagpur is the best and most convenient option.
