With lush green environs, beautiful flora and some of the rarest fauna, Dachigam National Park, in Jammu and Kashmir is a natural treasure.
Dachigam stands for 'ten villages', which is kept in memory of the ten village communities that had to be relocated to create the catchment area and the park.
Situated 22km from the main town of Srinagar, the national park is India's most elevated forest reserve at an altitude of 1700m to 4300m above sea level and is spread over a sprawling 141 sqkms. Right from the Himalayan grey langur that feeds on the barks of trees to the rare Himalayan brown bear to Pygmy Owlets to the predators, the leopards. You shall not be disappointed one bit because Dachigam is always prepared to show you all of its beauty.
