About Bandhavgarh National Park
Bandhavgarh National Park is situated in the low lying areas encompassed by cliffs and wooded Vindhyan mountains, and its plains contain wetlands covered by a variety of grass and reeds, which are the resting ground of numerous birds and other faunal species. This national park nestled among the Vindhya hills came into existence in 1968 when the Maharaja of Rewa handed over the area to the government for it's formation. Bandhavgarh National Park presently consists of an area of 448 square kilometers. The park area is primarily dominated by Sal forests, which is the main tree-cover found in the entire park along with Bamboo. It was finally declared a tiger reserve under Project Tiger in 1993.
