Calling all wildlife enthusiasts! Have you visited the Valmiki Tiger Reserve in Bihar? If not, then you definitely should. Read on to know why.
Located in the West Champaran district of Bihar, Valmiki Tiger Reserve is home to wild mammals and over 250 species of birds. The forest reserve arranges wildlife safaris and offers accommodation as well for tourists. You can also go trekking, camping and birdwatching. Visiting the sanctuary during full moon is quite an amazing experience, we are told. Because its nestled at the foothills of the Himalayan Shivalik range, the landscape is quite undulating.

There are also several historical places around the national park that you can visit - Lauriya Nandan Garh and Someshwar Fort, to name a couple of them.
