Dampa Tiger Reserve

Dampa Tiger Reserve or Dampha Tiger Reserve, the largest wildlife sanctuary in Mizoram, India was notified in 1985 and declared a Tiger Reserve in 1994. It is situated in the western part of Mizoram state, at the international border with Bangladesh about 127 km from Aizawl. It covers an area of approximately 550 km². The tropical forests of Dampa are home to rich flora and fauna. It consists of forest interpolated with steep precipitous hills, deep valleys, jungle streams, ripping rivulets, natural salts licks, with an altitudinal zone of 200–800 mts. Dampa Tiger Reserve is a part of Project Tiger funded by the Government of India. The Dampa Tiger Reserve occupies an area of 500 sq. km. and lies in west Mizoram in northeastern India, along the border between India and Bangladesh. The hills and forests in this 'Land of the highlanders' are considered by biologists to be "biogeographic highways" connecting India to Malayan and Chinese regions. The rich, luxuriant rainforests of Dampa harbour several species such as the swamp deer, tiger, leopard, elephant and hoolock gibbon. The Dampa Tiger Reserve is probably one of the last few safe havens for the tiger and a host of other animal and bird species. Low altitude galliformes are visible and the three species of Chloropsis found in India are endemic to these fabulous forests.
