Kanha Tiger Reserve, also kown as The Kanha National Park stretches over 940 square kilometres and is chiefly made of sal and bamboo forests, grasslands and streams. It is one of many tiger reserves in India and is the largest national park within the state of Madhya Pradesh. It is the sole habitat of the rare hard-ground Barasingha, a species of deer that is totally dependent on grasses and grassland. The forests of the Banjar valley and Halon valley, respectively forming Kanha's western and eastern halves have always been famous for their deer and tiger population. By a special statute in 1955, Kanha National Park came into being. Since then a string of stringent conservation programs have been launched for the overall protection of the park's flora and fauna and it is one of the well-maintained National Parks in Asia.
