The popular place on the Indo Nepal border lies in the district Lakhimpur- Kheri. Dudhwa Tiger Reserve Area consists of Dudhwa national park and Kishanpur Sanctuary. Well, the assorted range covers an area of 614 square kilometers and is one of the finest examples of the extremely diverse and productive “Terai” eco-system.
And as the name suggests the park is known for its Tigers but strangely, the major attraction of this park is not only Tigers, the twelve horned Swamp Deer are also observed here. The majestic herds are especially viewed in the grassy wetlands of the Sathania and Kakraha blocks.
Another fierce animal, one-horned rhinoceros were released from Assam and Nepal and guess what, now they have increased in number. Other animals seen here are Elephant, Jungle Cat, Fishing Cat, Jackal, Civet, Sloth, Bear, Crocodile, Python, Monitor Lizard, etc.
Dudhwa National park is also a great bird watching site since the marshlands attract a large number of migratory birds during the winters. One can also view colorful woodpeckers, barbets, kingfishers, bee-eaters, etc. It also boasts of probably the greatest number of owls and storks
The best time to visit here – Mid- November to Mid – June.
