India Meghalaya Balphakram National Park

About

Perched at an altitude of 3000 meters above sea level in Garo hills in Meghalaya, is situated Balphakram National Park which literally means ‘land of perpetual wind’. An awe-inspiring small canyon separates the Garo Hills plateau from the Khasi-Hills and is part of the National Park.

Balphakram National Park is the home of Barking Deer and Golden Cat. Wild water buffalo, elephants, red panda, tiger and marble cats are most commonly seen animals in this park. The almost extinct Gaurs or Indian Bisons are also found in the park. The Balphakram national park captivates the tourists with its enchanting natural scenarios. The third longest cave in India, Siju Dobkhakol is present within the park.

The best time to come to Balphakram National Park is from the months of October to March when the weather is pleasant with little rainfall.
