Bandhavgarh National Park Weather And Best Time To Visit Bandhavgarh National Park
Bandhavgarh National Park is located in Madhya Pradesh’s north-eastern border with the Satupura mountain ranges nearby. The reserve is spread over 1160 sq. km while the tourists have been restricted to the Tala Range which covers 105 sq. km. The core zone on the other hand consists of four zones which are Kallwah, Magdhi, Panpatha and Khitauli. The altitude of the reserve is between 400 m and 800 m. The reserve has 32 hills within it as well as a huge natural fort right at the park’s centre. The weather in Bandhavgarh National Park is tropical with winters that are well defined as are summer and the monsoon. The best time to visit Bandhavgarh is between October and March. More details of the weather and best time are now discussed.
The best time to visit Bandhavgarh National Park depends on your objective really. If you wish to see diverse species of birds then one must visit the park between October and January. On the other hand the early summer months are probably the best for wildlife photographers, especially if you are a tiger photographer. In the hot months you will find wild animals all close to the water source. However, peak summer is not considered suitable for visitors.
Bandhavgarh Park is not open to tourists during the monsoon. However, during this period the entire park becomes lush green. Because of severe cases of waterlogging that may occur during this period navigation within the park often becomes impossible.
The park remains open for visitors between 15 October and 30 June. The winter is the peak season for Bandhavgarh National Park. Most tourists visit the park between the months of November and March. From November the park becomes excellent for viewing, with the monsoon having rejuvenated the park and all its inhabitants. However, sighting is easier between March and May since vegetation dries up, thereby making it easier to spot wildlife, especially the majestic tiger. Winters tend to be very cold with temperatures dropping to freezing point by night. So, please be prepared with lots of woollens.
