Pench NATIONAL PARK & Tiger Reserve
About PENCH (Jawaharlal Nehru) National Park
Pench National Park and Tiger Reserve is located in the heart of India, shared between Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Mowgli’s adventures’ and his battle with the furious Sher Khan, was inspired from this very place.
It’s believed that, in 1831, there were reports of a child being arrested, who had grown up with the wolves in Satbavadi village near Seoni. That report gave birth to the famous character of Mowgli. The places described in The Jungle Book, like the Vainganga River and its valley, place where Sher Khan was killed and the mountain ranges of village Kannivara and Sivani, are actual places in the Seoni district.Driving into Pench is like watching a thriller movie unfold its chapters one by one. The deciduous teak forest is home to many unique birds, animals, and flower species, and as you delve deeper into the woods, the forest gets darker.
