Hey, in case you are planning on it, how about getting more T-BHPians from pune? I'm interested in Dajipur!
So all ready for the KL trip?

We all are set to go to kul and sin. Wait and watch the upcoming travelogue.

Summer time will be ideal for Dajipur and Amboli.
We will make a plan if more bhpians are interested in this 2-3 days family trip.


@Fazal sir,
sorry for little ot.

Those are some fantastic shots Fazal. By far the best shots I have seen of the majestic beasts. You are very lucky to have spotted those. The way things are going, I dont know how long tigers will be around and just might end up as pictures in books sometime in the near future. Even the pictures of the other wildlife are really well shot.

Looking forward to more from you. Keep up the good work.

Fazal Bhai, what amazing snaps. The dormant desire to go to Pench has been again rekindled by your post...

I have seen a remarkable difference in way Maharashtra and MP handle forest, MP seems to be very proffesional while MS seem to just go by motion, and for a record tadoba is the only national park which has a tar road and a MSRTC bus run through it one end to another end twice daily, now what do we all expect? Machans and almost all the villages has been removed from within the core, but lots are there in adjecent and buffer zone,people who moved out of the jungle have started agitating with political backup to again go back in jungle else more compensetion is given. You can view more tiger on Mul road, Ballarshah road than in Tadoba. I have been seeing this since eighties, we used to get dayoff in school KV Ordance Factory Chanda, once the news of tiger/leopard entered the ordanance factory area.
My personal opinion is, we should visit the sanctuary that at least gaurantees that there are NO POACHER in the jungle and tigers counts and movements are always noted and untoward incident can be avoided.

@prmods: the tar road runs from Chandrapur to Chimur and yes there is a once daily ST bus service that crosses part of the forest. But it doesnt pass through the core areas but only the tourist zones. In any case, the bus service is being rerouted via Warora.

Tadoba is not the only national park with a tar road! Nagarhole and Bandipur also have them and infact those are National Highways!!

Agreed, that way Pench too has NH passing through, but my point was we need lots of effort to leave with nature and with running population it seems difficult and every one including tigers are suffering. The best effort would be to create more awareness

-Pramod
PS:the warora route was always there but there are few more villages still there that would need relocation before this bus service stop, once that is done this road should be closed, but because of this route this national park is 12 month open, unlike other which are closed during rainy season

I happened to watch this telecast. Was mesmerized of a documentary made on Indian Tiger. It's a beatifully captured story. As far as I remember there were three cubs.

Fazal Sahab, very nice pictures of wildlife from that region
I appreciate you sharing your real world experience pertaining to the wildlife conservation scenario in the country, it shatters the rhetoric belted out by various organizations and statutory bodies who seem to be bothered about saving their own incompetent skin and turpitude rather than contributing towards our ecological heritage.
Your voice and opinion on the subject through this forum takes a travelogue to a higher ground, please do continue with such journeys and postings, the breathtaking pictures as always are a treat to the eye.

Guys, next time you are visiting Todoba or Pench, do visit 2 more national park near by nagpur, called Nagzira and Nawegaon both with in 100kms of Nagpur on Bandara road NH6.
Nagpur is surrounded by Pench, Melghat, Nawegaon, Nagzira and Tadoba all are tiger reserve.
Thanks

I was recently reading in Local Bengali newspaper about some beautiful
tourist spots like " Ramtek " and Khindsi " near Nagpur . it says the lake
in " Khindsi " is a true reminder of Switzerland.

Any Informations on these places please ?

Cheers
