Ranked 1 among Places to Visit in Hazaribagh
Time Required: 2-3 hrs
Located in the state of Jharkhand, the Hazaribagh National Park is one of the oldest wildlife sanctuaries in India. It was established in 1954 with an objective of conserving wildlife and providing a home for rare and endangered species of flora and fauna. The landscape is full of steep hills, spectacular countryside, thick tropical forest and lovely meadows. The Hazaribagh National Park is located at a distance of 19 km from Hazaribagh and 135 km away from Ranchi. The best part about visiting this national park and wildlife sanctuary is that all its interiors are very well-connected by internal roads of 111 km that are constructed in such a way that animals do not get obstructed as they go about their daily business.
Nestled in the hilly terrains of Chota Nagpur plateau, the sanctuary is spread over an area of 183.89 square kilometres and has an altitude of 615 meters. The national park did not get much tourist attention until 2007 until the deputy CM of the state announced the construction of a state-of-the-art elephant project that aimed at attracting more tourists.
Hop in for the jeep safaris, climb to the watchtowers and enjoy the magnificent wildlife and natural aesthetics of the place. The beautiful amalgamation of nature and wildlife will make exploring Hazaribagh National Park a once in a lifetime experience. Although the number of tigers in the sanctuary is relatively low, you can spot a number of other animals such as Cheetal, Nilgai, Sambar, and Wild Boar.
