Hazaribagh National Park, located 19 km (12 mi) from Hazaribagh, Jharkhand, India and about 135 km (84 mi) from Ranchi is a national park and also a wildlife sanctuary. The park has tigers, panthers, sambhars, spotted deer, bisons and a number of mammalian faunas. The Cheetal, Kakar, Nilgai, Sambar and Wild Boar are among the most easily and often spotted animals particularly near the waterholes at the time of the dusk. The population of the tigers is very low - according to a 1991 Census, there were 14 tigers in the park. They are considered difficult to sight.
A 111-kilometre (69 mi) long stretch of the road in the sanctuary connects the park's areas and masonry watchtowers. It offers several opportunities to view wild animals in their natural surroundings. The sanctuary stretches over 186 square km of undulating country and steep hills with dense tropical forests and grass meadows.
