We actually have quite a few national parks declared as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO which are must-visits! Forests are green, cool and full of adventure – just the right mix to have a fun vacation away from the summer heat. And not just that, there isn’t a better time than summer if you really want to catch a glimpse of the wild animals; as this is the time when they head out to nearby water sources to quench their thirst. Sightings are known to be really high in summers. So, what are you waiting for?
Here are a few of the best wildlife places to visit this summer, in India.

1. Jim Corbett National Park
Jim Corbett National Park is located in Uttarakhand and is rich in diverse wildlife set in the backdrop of beautiful landscape! It is home to many wildlife species of mammals, birds and vegetation. Head north in summer to catch a glimpse of the majestic tiger and huge tuskers! The national park is a pleasant visit in the summers where the forest cover gives a cool respite to the burning sun!

2. Hemis National Park
Head further north towards the gorgeous Jammu and Kashmir where the huge Hemis National Park is located in Ladakh district. It is recognized for its biodiversity and you will get to see animals that you may not be able to see elsewhere in the country like Eurasian brown bear, Asiatic ibex, Tibetan wolf and red fox. The terrain is challenging but you get to see wildlife that’s unique and native to high altitudes and cold temperatures. The place itself is such a beauty and the cold, a pleasant change from heated summers. You may have problems in getting there or finding a good place for accommodation but it is all worth the pain!

3. Pench National Park
Visit Pench National Park in Central India that is very well connected to major cities like Nagpur and Jabalpur and throughout India actually. Getting there is easy and staying there, even easier. Pench National Park is known for its charismatic forest cover, which is a mix of grasslands and dry, deciduous forest. It is popular as a tiger reserve and sightings are known to increase in summers as the animals gather near the lake to access water. A number of wild animals like leopards, sloth bears, hyenas etc. too call Pench home and overall sightings are great as the forest cover is not dense in summer and the heat brings them to water. Pench National Park is an easy getaway if you really mean business with spotting wildlife!

4. Greater Himalayan National Park
Wildlife is always associated with thick forest cover and greenery. But this summer, you could explore the magnificent beauty of Greater Himalayan National Park located in Kullu district in the lap of the Himalayas. It is awarded the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site and the rich biodiversity is amazing! The diversity in flora is unbeatable and there are about 375 different species of animals. There are several exotic birds like Western tragopan and amazing wildlife like snow leopards, musk deer, Asiatic brown bear, blue sheep and a lot more! A wildlife reserve amidst snow-capped mountains is definitely a must visit for the summers.

5. Kaziranga National Park
Known for its breezy weather and vast diversity of wildlife, Kaziranga National Park is inviting any time of the year and especially the summers. The weather is cool and pleasant and the views are spectacular. You can witness amazing wildlife moments as you catch the exotic one-horned rhinoceros, elephants, swamp deer, tigers and wild buffaloes in action! It is a world heritage site and is also an amazing spot for birdwatching. The tall grasses and vast plains give a different kind of view and experience!

Sightings are generally higher in summers as the animals are forced to venture out to quench their thirsts! Also, the vegetation gets drier and sparse to allow for easier viewing of the animals. Summers are a great time for wildlife safaris, and do not miss out on yours this time!
