This summer, I visited Dudhwa National Park and the forests of the Terai in UP for the first time.
Pristine and mystical, almost surreal at times, they are rich in Flora and Fauna.
You’ve the majestic tiger and the mighty elephant, the endangered Swamp deer as well as one of wild India’s most precious treasures, the Indian One Horned Rhinoceros.
The Sal is the dominant tree here, the jungles are wild and deep and inspire awe as well as fear.
This is a paradise for bird lovers too.

He is celebrated conservationist who has authored many books and passionately debunked many fallacies of the maneater tiger. Part of royal lineage of Kapurthala and true spokesman of wildlife. Much admired in the wildlife circle for passion and love for the animals. Fierce and without fear he used to explore deep forest with just one stick which can be seen in the photograph.
