The secret to spotting tigers in any of the national parks in India is that as opposed to the best time to visit a sanctury which is mostly suggested weather wise- which is from November till February - the best time to spot a Royal Bengal Tiger is from March till May and that is why we have included Ranthambore, one of India's top wildlife sanctuaries in our list of things to do in India in April.
A picturesque hill-state, Nagaland is located in the extreme north east region of India. The state is surrounded by Assam in the west and Myanmar in the east, and thus is bestowed with rich cultural heritage. In spite of being a small state, there is huge footfall experienced throughout the year. Saramati (12600 ft) is the highest peak in the state.
Pench National Park, Madhya Pradesh
