About National Chambal Sanctuary
The Chambal Valley is synonymous with legendary tales of bandits. That phase is done and dusted, and there is now a modern conservation success story which is the Chambal National Sanctuary – one of the last refuges of the Gharial crocodile– the most critically endangered species amongst various important species of wildlife and birds occurring at Chambal.
The National Chambal Sanctuary in totality is spread out between 3 states of India: Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. Chambal River originates in the Vindhyan Mountains of Central India, and is a tributary of the River Yamuna, forming large Ravines and creating a maze of Mud-cliffs which provide nesting grounds for birds, reptiles and crustaceans of the area.
The habitat around the river is mostly Tropical Scrub Forest. Here, there are over 300 species of birds recorded in addition to various reptiles and freshwater mammals.
