Betla National Park (palamau)

The world’s first tiger-census was done in the Palamau forests in 1932. There were around 54 tigers here in 1991. One can drive through patches of dense sal and bamboo forests in the National Park. The best time to visit the National Park is from February to April. Tigers, panthers, sloth bears, gaurs, Indian porcupines, wolves, wild boars, dholes (wild dogs), chinkaras, sambars, mouse deer, and pangolin find refuge in these forests.

Elephants appear during the monsoon with the availability to water. During the rest of the months, the water sources dry up here and the park faces acute water-scarcity. The park is spread over an area of 250 square kilometers and is also known as the Betla National Park. Livestock dependence is high. Peafowl, red jungle fowl, and partridges are the common birds found here.
