Pench and Kanha National Parks and Tiger Reserves are home to the endangered tiger and are believed to be the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling's famous novel, The Jungle Book. Apart from the royal Bengal tiger, it is also home to swamp deer, that found a safe habitat here when they were nearing extinction. The sunset point is another attraction for its incredible natural splendor.
