Hello all!

I am wondering which national parks in India you think are the best to visit?

I am interested in your opinions but I guess to me the most important things are natural beauty, seeing some wildlife and good trekking.

I am planning to do this in early December and I am very flexible about where in India I can go.

I look forward to your responses!

The wikipedia has a list of 98 national parks in India and you can click on the links for more information on most of them.

Possibly things have changed since but I visited a few when I was there many years ago and they were so-so. Very little wildlife. I saw more when on the road and even in towns.

Do not touch any animals, even cats and dogs. Rabies. Monkeys can be very vicious and are very strong.

Thoroughly wash your hands after touching any unknown plants before eating anything.

Usually the combination of good trekking and seeing wildlife is not much of an option. It's either nature/trekking or nature/wildlife, although there probably are a few exceptions.

Have been to both Bandhavgarh and Kanha National Parks. Both are perfect regarding nature (not spectactular mountains or so, but diversity regarding flora and fauna are impressive) and the wildlife was fantastic as well. You can view some photos of mine in my photo gallery. Saw 5 tigers, of which 4 in Bandhavgarh and only 1 in Kanha. Kanha is bigger and is more diverse. Bandhavgarh is one of the best places in the world to see tigers in the wild.

Trekking is very good in Ladakh, but can't really comment on that because I haven't been there. Not my cup of tea anyway to go trekking...:)
