Satpura is a Sanskrit word, which means seven mountains (Sapta=seven Pura=mountain). The Satpura National Park is spread over 1427 sq. km with altitude ranging from 300 to 1,352 meters. The rugged terrain consists of fascinating deep valleys, sandstone peaks, narrow gorges, rivulets, waterfalls and thick forest. It is home to the majestic tiger and a number of other critically endangered animals. The park is also known to be a delight for bird watchers.
The enchanting lake cruise takes you on a serene hour-long ride along the dreamy little islands dotting the reservoir and the panoramic hills of the Satpura to Churna. Here you can indulge in a jungle safari at Gomchi Back, where you are likely to spot sloth bears, leopards, spotted deers, black bucks, and if your luck holds, the majestic tiger!
Motorboats take you on lazy cruises along the unending backwaters. Sightings of wildlife and rare migratory birds make for wonderful photo opportunities.
