Jambughoda Wildlife Sanctuary


The Jambughoda Wildlife Sanctuary comprises dense forests covered with teak, bamboo, mahuda trees and other small vegetation. There are various animal species in this sanctuary, including nilgai (blue bull, the largest antelope in Asia), jackal, hyena and wild boar. Barking deer, sloth bear and chausingha (four-horned antelope) are few other animals seen in this sanctuary.

Before Indian independence, Jambughoda was a princely state, filled with valleys and hills, which were home to the tribal community. Hiking is a popular activity in this sanctuary and camping can also be done at nights. There is a forest rest house in the area, which is just next to the Kada reservoir.

The nearest bus stand and railway station is situated in Shivrajpur, which is barely 1 km away from the sanctuary.
