Uttar Pradesh with its 16620 sq km forest area is home to some exquisitely beautiful
landscapes, forest-vistas, meandering rivers and breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls
and a large number of endangered birds and animals. There are forest dwelling tribes
and communities who have maintained their traditions and culture while embracing
modern technologies and life-styles. There is one national park, 11 wild life sanctuaries
and 24 bird sanctuaries to provide protection to endangered biodiversity of the
state. Some bird sanctuaries have been declared important bird areas by the Bombay
Natural History Society.
It is our endeavor to showcase these natural treasures for the tourists with active
participation of local communities so that the visitors can appreciate the grandeur
and generosity of nature, understand importance of recycling and curbing consumption
and imbibe the culture of nature and resource conservation. This form of responsible
tourism is now known as eco-tourism. Uttar Pradesh Government with its strong commitment
to conservation is promoting eco-tourism to the wilderness areas of the state.
Booking for Dudhwa National Park, Motipur, Kakraha and Katerniaghat are open. Visit
to forest area is permitted now.
