Experience at Kishtwar National Park

Access to free education for everyone

The Kishtwar park was founded with an aim to protect the dwindling snow leopards. Other than snow leopards, the park houses animal species like the brown bear, Ibex, Himalayan black bear, Markhor, musk deer, wild boar, bharal, Indian muntijal, serow, and the Rhesus macaque. The Hangul stag migrates to this place from Dachigam in winters. One can also spot various bird species like the Himalayan Monal, koklass, Himalayan snowcock, Himalayan jungle crow, paradise flycatcher, golden oriole, bearded vulture, griffon vulture, Indian Mynah, and white-cheeked bulbul.

Though it has a vast array of wildlife and avifauna, people are drawn more to its natural resources and attractions. The park has a rich flora of coniferous, alpine, meadows, and scrub forests and is bounded by the stunning snowy Himalayan peaks. Other natural attractions include cascading waterfalls, the river Rinnay, narrow valleys, high rocky ridges, as well as the popular Sapphire Mines of Paddar. The park also has designated camping grounds and various trekking trails for adventure seekers and nature lovers.
