‘Chandraprabha’ is a land covered with dense forest; small hills, prehistoric caves shelters and majestic waterfalls.
The hills and the dense forest has hundreds of caves hidden in a spread of over an area of 78 km² that lies on the Naugarh fort and Vijaigarh fort on the northern slope of the Kaimur Range. Presently abandoned, these caves had been home to the prehistoric humans for long before time. You can still find evidence of their lives and habitats on those cave walls in the form of primitive cave paintings.
The forest was developed as a hunting preserve for the rulers of Varanasi, in the second half of the 18th century. A variety of wild animals are found here, which include Blackbucks, Chital, Sambar, Nilgai, Wild Boar, Bear, Leopard, Porcupine, Chinkara, Gharial (small crocodile) and Python. The park is a bird watcher's paradise, as one can witness around 150 species of birds.
The forest and tourism departments of Uttar Pradesh Govt. have developed very comfortable accommodation and amenities for tourists and visitors in cooperation with private facilitators. Tourists can enjoy a wide range of fun activities like hiking, site seeing, tribal music, along with delicious food and much more.
