Travel And Tour World spoke to Tanvi Sundriyal, Additional Managing Director, Madhya Pradesh State Tourism Development Corporation at the ITB Berlin, 2017. Ms. Sundriyal elaborates about the significance of national parks as well as the concept of water tourism for the tourism sector of the region.



Travel and Tour World: What is coming up in 2017 for next 12 months?


Tanvi Sundriyal: In Madhya Pradesh we are now focusing on water-tourism which means that we have a grand event for ‘Jal Mahotsav’. It would be conducted during the period of November, continuing till the first three days of January. Therefore, it is a great place to celebrate Christmas and New Year festivities. The venue is based on the banks of the Indirasagar Dam which has a submerging area measuring about 945 square kilometers. In fact, it is the second largest dam in Asia. So, this place transforms into a hub for adventure sports, water-based and cultural activities, pulsating with a distinct life of its own. It is our third year for this event.


Travel and Tour World: Can you tell us about the national parks in Madhya Pradesh?


Tanvi Sundriyal: Madhya Pradesh is the place for tigers.

We have six tiger reserves and also a huge tiger corridor that spans from Panna Tiger Reserve in the north which is truly amazing since it boasts of the best tiger sightings with over 30 tigers in the park. It also has a grass-land region where tigers can be easily spotted, and it is located near Khajuraho that attracts a great deal of international interest.

It also has a beautiful rock you can come across nearly six or seven species of vultures nesting. Another park, Sanjay-Dubri Tiger Reserve is coming up and it would be one of the top three tiger reserves of India, and so it is definitely a place to watch out for.

Bandhavgarh is another place that is popular for possessing the highest tiger densities since the area is less and the number of tigers is more.

One would come across natural walking trails and sal forests in Kanha National Park. In addition, there is a fake sanctuary that would soon be developed as a part of Kanha. In this fake sanctuary, one can actually hop around along the walking trails and experience the charm of the jungle.

When one visits Pench, the land of Rudyard Kipling’s Mowgli of the Jungle Book fame, he would be able to explore the inherent beauty of the forest. There is also a company that conducts walking tours of the surrounding tribal villages.

Satpura Tiger Reserve is another place that is renowned for its pristine beauty. Here, one can catch sight of different varieties of animals, butterflies, lizards, spiders and a huge bison population. Therefore, all the tiger reserves in Madhya Pradesh offer a unique experience one can savour and take back home.
