Pench national park is situated in the Seoni district of southern Madhya Pradesh, on the border between Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Pench is well-known for its rich flora and fauna. Named after the Pench River that flows nearby, the park extends over 758 km.
Two types of forest - the southern tropical dry deciduous teak forest and the southern tropical mixed deciduous forest are found in Pench. This mixture of trees ensures many different birds and small animals live in this unspoilt habitat. There are many species of shrubs, trees, and climbers in the forests in Pench. There are also many rare varieties of herbs and grasses in this region that are known to be of medicinal use.
The best time to visit Pench wildlife sanctuary is summer, because the lack of thick forest cover and the animals thirst for water takes them to the clearings around watering holes in the park, where they can easily be seen from watchtowers and hides or on elephant back.
