Dudhwa National Park

        Indian visitor's

        Visitor's from Abroad

 

The thickly forested foothills of the Himalyas, in the state of Uttar pradesh, are generally referred to as the Terai. The splendid protected habitats located here, provide an unforgettable wildlife experience.

Further east along the Terai, the Dudhwa National Park , which is also a Tiger Reserve, is located in the district of Lakhimpur Kheri, very close to the Nepal border. The 498.29 sq. km. extensive grasslands.  

Tall coarse grass sometimes forming impenetrable thickets, swampy depressions and lakes characterize the wetlands of the Park. These are the habitat of large numbers of barasingha, the magnificent swamp deer, noted for their multi-tined antlers (bara-12, singha-horn). 

These in turn support the predators the tiger and leopard. Though the Park has a fair population of tigers, they are rarely seen owing to the nature of the forest cover.  

Dudhwa National Park

The grasslands are also ideal terrain for the Indian one horned rhinoceros. In an exciting project undertaken in 1984, a number of rhinos were translocated here from Assam and Nepal , in an attempt to extend their habitats and to exclude the possibility of wiping out entire populations through disease and epidemics. Presently, 13 rhinos can be seen in Dudhwa.

Other inhabitants include the sloth bear, jackal, wild pig and the lesser cats the fishing cat, leopard cat, jungle cat and civet. Dudhwa has also an abundance of birds. Its marshes are home to a range of water-birds both local and migratory. 

There are spectacular painted storks, black and white necked storks, sarus cranes and varied night birds of prey, ranging from the great Indian horned owl to the jungle owlet. Colourful woodpeckers, and bulbuls flit through the forest canopy. A fragile natural paradise, Dudhwa endeavours to protect its wild haven from the depredations of an expanding human population.
