Panna National Park

This National Park is situated 32 km from Khajuraho. It spreads along the river Ken. The jungles today harbor many species of wildlife. The tiger can be glimpsed here, along with other rare species such as the leopard, wolf and gharial. Herds of Nilgai, Chin Kara and Sambar are a common sight. Situated in a large dense forest belt forming the northern fringe of the natural teak forest, the Park provides an ideal habitat for the tiger. Alternating valleys and plateaus, grassy maidens, steep gorges and escarpments, down which the waterfalls cascade, present a breathtaking panoramic vies. A gharial sanctuary along the river Ken near the spectacular Raneh Falls is an added attraction for tourists. The river attracts a number of avian species, some of them pretty and the others good songsters.
