Melghat

Amaravati , Maharashtra

Located in the Amravati district of Maharashtra, Melghat is one of the places that make the whole country proud. This is one of the most well maintained tifer reserves in the country. For the dwindling number of the beautiful wild beasts, this is the perfect sanctuary. The Tapti River and the Gawilgadh ridge of the Satpura Range form the boundaries of the Reserve. This is the forest which lies in the catchment area of the river and is located in one of the most luch green areas. The dense foliage hides life forms which are not only rare but also abundant only in these conditions. This place needs to be protected to preserve the rarity of these species. The name Melghat means the meeting of the Ghats and is quite appropriate for this region. This is a place which is filled with rugged terrain with huge cliffs, ridges, ravines and steep climbs along with limited entry points. These tropical dry deciduous forests are naturally protected from any external invasion in here. Melghat is a prime bio-zone that preserves diverse species of life forms. It is estimated that Melghat consists more than 700 species of plants. Among the animals found mostly in Melghat are tiger, leopard, sloth bear, sambar, gaur, nilgai, chital, ratel, langur, Rhesus monkey, pangolin, python, otter, black-naped hare and many others. Historic monuments like Gawilgarh Fort on the Chikhaldara plateau and Narnala Fort on the south-eastern part of Melghat are other attractions of Melghat. These breaks the vastness of the forests and gives you ample opportunity to delve into the past of this place which is so strategically positioned. One of the first Tiger reserves in the country, this is one place that will definitely impress you.
