About this Park

Lies in Doda District, some 40km north-east of Kishtwar Town. It is bounded to the north by the Rinnay River, south by Kibar Nala catchment, east by the main divide of the Great Himalaya and to the west by Marwa River. 33*20'-34*00'N, 75*40'-76*10'E.The national park encompasses the cachments of the Kiar, Nanth and Kibar nalas, all of which drain south-west into Marwa River which joins the Chenab River just above Kishtwar Town. The terrain is generally rugged and steep, with narrow valleys bounded by high ridges opening out in their upper glacial parts. The area lies in the Central Crystalline belt of the Great Himalaya. Kishtwar High Altitude National Park in Jammu is interesting for the marked variations in topography and vegetation that occur here. Spread over an area of 400-sq-kms, the park contains 15 mammal species including the Musk Deer, Markhor, Hangul, Langur, Leopard and Himalayan Black and Brown Bear.

Tourist Attraction at Kishtwar

The area is a potential tourist attraction but there are almost no facilities at present. Forest rest houses exist at Ekhala and Sirshi. An additional two, with catering facilities for tourists, are planned for the tract between Sirshi and Yurdu (Bacha, 1986).

Avifauna - Fifty species of birds also exist here and the main species are the Himalayan Jungle Crow, Griffon Vulture, Bearded Vulture, Golden Oriole, Paradise Flycatcher, White Cheeked Bulbul, and Indian Mynah.

Flora - The sanctuary area is characterized by marked variations in topography, climate and altitude as a result of which different types of forest vegetation occur. The principal tree species are Cedrus Deodara, Pinus Gerardiana, Pinus Wallichiana, Juglans Regia, etc. The dominant shrubs are Parrotiopsis Jacquemontiana, and Desmodium Tiliaefolium. The major herbs include Dipsacus Mitis, Artemisia Vulgaris, etc.

How to Reach There

Air: Nearest airport is situated at Jammu (250-km). Rail: Nearest railhead is Jammu (248-km). Road: The road is constructed up to Ikhala, but bus services are operated up to Plamer only, which is 20-km north of Kishtwar.
