About Tiger Safari in Dudhwa Tour
Located in the State of Uttar Pradesh (North India), it will be unfair to call Dudhwa anything but beautifully bio-diverse. Call us biased if you wish but once you experience and breath in everything Dudhwa has to offer, you will have similar thoughts. The Park came into limelight because of Billy Arjan Singh, the man who ‘found’ this hidden treasure. Part of the most beautiful Terai Forests of India located in the Upper-Gangetic Plains, these protected forests are formed by Moist Deciduous, Evergreen Forests and Alluvial Plains on the doab of the Mohana and Suheli Rivers.
What makes Dudhwa National Park really interesting are its areas. Katerniaghat, another hidden gem, about 85 kms from Dudhwa, is a Ghariyal breeding center. Another Sactuary, Kishanpur, is just 25 kms away. Linked to Pilibhit Tiger Reserve, it can be easily be clubbed with Dudhwa and Katerniaghat, to make a wonderful 5 night program here.
