The inspiration for Rudyard Kipling's 'Jungle Book'

A mixed forest bamboo and sal, of grassy meadows and winding ravines, Kanha National Park was one of the first areas in India to fall under the Project Tiger conservation program to save the Royal Bengal Tiger. Kanha boasts abundant mammal populations and diverse bird life, and it offers sanctuary for the endangered barasingha (12-horned) deer, the black buck, lesser florican among others. The deep, dark jungles of Kanha inspired Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book, and gave us a slew of immortal characters from Mowgli to Sher Khan, Bagheera to Baloo.
