In accordance with the guidelines of the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), the Betla National Park under Palamu Tiger Reserve (PTR) will remain closed for tourists for the next three months- July 1 to September 30. Visitors to the park will be allowed entry from October 1 onwards.
The park remains closed during rainy season every year as it is breeding time for animals. Only officials are allowed entry during this time, so as not to disturb the animals. Too much disturbance can hamper the wildlife population.
Featuring a luxuriant forest cover and a rich variety of fauna, Betla is home to tiger, elephant, deer, leopard, wild boar, flying squirrel and bison. More than 180 species of resident birds can be spotted in the forest.
