Amid the rising number of coronavirus cases, the Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh, which was shut since March-end, has reopened for tourists after a gap of over two-and-a-half months. On the first day of its reopening on Monday, 76 tourists visited the park in 19 vehicles.
The park, which is one of the tigers reserves in the country, has been opened again for tourists in accordance with the guidelines of the Centre and the state government.
Online ticketing facility for the safari has been restored as earlier, said an official from the national park which is nestled in the Satpura mountain range of the state’s Mandla district, located about 410 km from Bhopal.
Only 12 people are allowed in a safari vehicle instead of 18 along with one guide in place of two in order to follow the social distancing norms.
