Satpura National Park, established in 1981, is located in Madhya Pradesh and covers just over 500 square kilometres of unique Central Indian Highland ecosystems. It is one of the country’s lesser-known national parks and, as such, is not overrun by visitors. The park is inhabited by a variety of mammals from leopard and sambar to bison and wild dog. Sloth bear and tigers can also be seen here but only in small numbers. The scenery is beautiful; densely forested hills, rugged sandstone peaks and narrow ravines.
