Weekend with Tigers at Pench National Park
A touch of the monsoon rains adds new life to both forests and its inhabitants. Sweet smell of wet earth fills the forest air. I think, this is one of the ideal seasons to enjoy the vegetation at its best and look for Bengal tigers and other wildlife in the Pench National Park, a tiger reserve named after the Pench River that meanders through the park featuring both tropical moist deciduous and dry deciduous type forests. The park, situated in Satpura Hills, Madhya Pradesh, is about a 3-hour drive from Nagpur, Maharastra, India.
