Has an elephant ever shaken your hand? At Dudhwa National Park, you can experience this firsthand. Dudhwa National Park is home to many extraordinary species of flora and fauna along with some beautiful views.

After the independence of India, human settlement in the Dudhwa jungle increased. As a result, there was a large-scale conversion of forest land into agricultural land in order to cater to the needs of the new settlers. As the park is located on the Indo-Nepal border, it became an easy target for poachers and hunters. This caused a rise in the wildlife trade. However, Billy Arjan Singh, a conservationist, helped restore the park to its past days of glory. Through his efforts, the area of the jungle attained the status of a national park. His efforts helped the area in becoming a safe reserve for endangered animals including one-horned rhinoceros and tigers.

One-horned rhinoceros were on the verge of extinction, but due to the project that was undertaken for their rehabilitation, currently, there are over twenty-five rhinos residing in this national park. The national park has also emerged as a safe reserve for tigers. Their average density in the park is healthy, leading to frequent sightings.

We also learnt about the Tharus Tribe, which originated from Rajasthan and migrated to Nepal in order to escape the Mughal invasion during the Battle of Haldighati.

Our drive through Dudhwa National Park was a blissful experience as we immersed ourselves in the beauty of nature. The three-hour safari where one can sight rare flora and fauna is a must for all.
