A land that inspired Rudyard Kipling to write his classic novel 'Jungle Book', the forested areas of Kanha, with their wild thickets of sal and bamboo forests, rolling meadows and dramatic ravines, are home to the Kanha National Park. The Created in 1955, the national park is today the core area of the Kanha Tiger Reserve, which came into being in 1974, under Project Tiger. The Banjar and the Halon valley form the two halves constituting the vast stretches of land that is the Kanha Tiger Reserve.
One of the greatest achievements of this park is perhaps its contribution in saving many endangered wildlife species, which nearly bordered extinction.
