The Satpura National Park is located in the beautiful and diverse suburbs of Madhya Pradesh and is one of the most diverse and stunning national parks in Central India. One of India's most beautiful tiger reserves, the sanctuary was the winner of the TOFT Wildlife Tourism Award for the most visitor-friendly wildlife destinations in the year 2010. Located in the Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh in India, Satpura Tiger Reserve spreads over an area of 202 square miles and gets its name from the Satpura Hill ranges, or Mahadeo hills.
The Satpura National Park is also of crucial importance to the ecosystem of India, because this sanctuary, along with the Bori and Pachmarhi sanctuaries, provides around 550 square miles of tiger reserve area. It was set up in the year 1981 and has its altitude ranging from 300 to 1,352 metres. The forest enclaves at the Satpura National Park provide habitat for several endangered and threatened species, other than a variety of different plants and animals.
The area and land that today comprises of the Satpura National Park were initially explored by Captain James Forsyth of Bengal Lancers in the year 1862. When the concerned authorities realised the ecological and commercial value of the vast expanses of lush green forests that the area housed, it was decided to declare it as a reserve forest. The area was then announced as a National Park and Sanctuary by the state government so that increased attention could be given to conserving the faunal and floral wealth of the ecosystem as a whole. Later on, the Satpura National Park, combined with the adjoining Bori and Panchmarhi Sanctuaries, went on to be declared as the Satpura Tiger reserve by the Indian government.
