The Pench National Park is a tiger reserve founded in 1977. Located in Seoni and Chhindwara districts of Madhya Pradesh, the park covers 758 square kilometres and was named after the Pench River that flows through the park from north to south, dividing it into almost equal halves. The park is home to around 39 species of mammals, 13 species of reptiles, and 3 species of amphibians, with the Bengal Tiger being the dominating species.
Not very far from Pench, lies a tiny village called Pachdar. The village is home to a community of potters that mould clay into exquisiteartefacts or decor. One can try their hand at pottery, or simply watch the hypnotising spinning-wheel and the hands of a skilled potter working in tandem. The sight is undeniably calming. Having a quiet picnic with your loved ones is made beautiful at the nearby Kohka Lake in Turia village. Cycle or walk through the lush fields, and watch the waterbirds’ naturally beautiful trajectories as they plunge into the water or fly out of it. Know what it is like to start the day in the wild. Drive through the Pench National Park to see and hear the jungle wake up to its primal routine. A bird watcher’s delight, Pench is home to over one hundred and seventy species of resident as well as migrant avians. Apart from exploring the forest for birds and animals, there are a few other things in Pench that will make the trip memorable, in a very sweet way. The souvenir shop at the Pench Interpretation Centre sells authentic Forest honey. Take home jars of this sweet nectar of the wild along with other souvenirs like safari-themed mugs, t-shirts, caps, and wildlife postcards.
