National Chambal Sanctuary

The animals found here were almost on the verge of extinction when they found a natural home here, against the advancing civilization which posed a threat to their existence. 6 species of Terrapins are found here, these are the web footed turtles, found mainly in brackish water. It is natural that such a large sanctuary would have a large river or lake to quench the thirst of the abundant animals found here. The avian attraction at National Chambal Sanctuary in UP consists mainly of Black tailed Terns, Red-crested and Ferruginous Pochards, Indian Courser, Pallas's Fish. The Chambal River that waters the National Chambal Sanctuary in UP originates in Kota in Rajasthan, and finally merges with river Yamuna at Bhareh. From dusty ravines to rocky falls this river leaps and bounds through many a ravine to come here ultimately.
