GIR national park - best time to visit
Usually every year I will visit some tourist destinations, so this time I am planning to visit gujarath. One of my friends recommended to visit “gir national park” where 300 asiatic lions are found, normally it is very rear to see huge number of lions at one place and now, I got an opportunity to see it and I do not want to miss it, so if you guys can tell me which will be the best time to visit, it will be really helpful for me, please do reply as soon as possible
I agree with you kumar……..
It is very rear to see so many lions at a time in one place, especially Asiatic lions……
The famous Gir national park faces the extremes of temperature. During summer the temperature touches a maximum of 46 degrees and in winter it touches up to the minimum of 6 degrees the park will be kept open from November to May, but the best time to visit is December to march.
GIR National park and WIld life Sanctuary is located in Gujarat. It is famous for Lions especially Asiatic Lions and is considered to be one of the most important protected areas. Total number of Lions present in this forest according to 2010 census is around 411. The forest is surrounded by seven perennial rivers such as Datardu, Shingoda, Machhundri, Raval, Godavari, Hiran and Shetrunji.
December to March is the best time to visit this forest. It has wildlife safari. It will be very hot during summer with the temperature crossed around 43 degrees Celsius. But the sanctuary will remain open throughout the year.
