At ¼ the size of the monstrous Kanha, Bandhavgarh’s claim to fame is having the largest density of tigers in India. Its beautiful physical characteristics also make it one of the most popular parks in India. The terrain is comprised of forested hills with a large dominant mesa in the center of the park. Bandhavgarh is blessed with over twenty streams flowing through the park, which empty into the Son River, a major tributary of the Ganga. The Indian bison and the porcupine are among the many other species in the park. Elephant back safaris and jeep safaris are the preferred methods for exploring this beautiful spot on Earth.

Travelers looking to catch a moonlight glimpse of Agra’s most famed attraction, the Taj Mahal, may soon find it to be a much easier endeavor.

Travelers in Agra may soon have more opportunities to see the Taj Mahal at night under the moon.

Catching the Taj Mahal in the light of the moon has been a much vaunted itinerary item for decades, but a lack of facilities has severely limited the Agra Tourism Department’s ability to hold nighttime viewings of the ancient Mughal monument. That could all quickly change if the city’s talks with the Archeological Survey of India, the federal body in charge of many of India’s treasured historic places, go according to plan.

Mehtab Bagh, a Mughal garden from the 17th century, faces the Taj Mahal from across the Yamuna River. While current night viewings of the Taj Mahal are limited to four or five days a month at the front gates of the monument, the ASI and city of Agra hope to create new facilities at Mehtab Bagh to accommodate 500 people nearly every night of the year.



Thousands of new trees will link two national parks; provide new habitats for India’s endangered tigers

A number of local businesses are partnering with the governement of Madhya Pradesh and the United Nations’ Environment Program to plant thousands of trees throughout the state in one of India’s largest-ever reforestation projects.

The project calls for 300,000 new trees to be planted over the course of the next three years to increase the total forest cover between Kanha Nationial Park and Pench National Park in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. The project will link the two national parks, some 70 miles away from each other using the local highways, with an unbroken chain of protected forest officials hope will enlarge wildlife populations.

“This project also hugely focuses on encouraging tiger breeding and movement in the Kanha-Pench corridor,” a local business leader working with the project recently told the Times of India.

The tourism department of Uttar Pradesh recently detailed plans to renovate a number of havelis (traditional mansions) and open them to the public as tourist attractions.

Local officials say the havelis chosen for the project are recognized as excellent examples of Mughal architecture.

“A list comprising nine havelis was prepared by the district administration last year for restoration purposes,” regional tourist officer Dinesh Kumar recently told the Times of India.

Some of the historic properties on the list include: Aslat Khan, Mahawat Khan, Azam Khan, and Mughal Khan.
