Bandhavgarh National Park

Bandhavgarh National Park is situated in Umaria, Katni districts of Madhya Pradesh.It is around 164 kms from Jabalpur (rail head) .
The national park is beautiful....There is a fort up the Bandhavgarh hill. The fort is said to have built about 2000 years ago.We could not trek it:( We barely had time but maybe next time...
It has been a while since I went for a trip to a national park, the last one was early 2007 and this trip was a year before that...but what a trip and a half that was!

We stayed at the White tiger forest lodge of Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation forest.Great accomodation and good food. It was a very short trip. Just about 2 days ...and guess what?
We sighted the Tiger on the 2nd day. Infact there were two tigers...
I still remember the moment...we were sitting on an elephant and we had to go off the main road and inside the jungle....
I still get goose bumps just thinking about that moment...what magnificant creatures!
