Many animals here are on the brink of extinction and are alive because of the conservation attempts in these wildlife sanctuaries. When you choose to go on a Goa trip or Manali tour, make sure to visit some of these wildlife havens.

Manali wildlife sanctuary is located just a couple of kilometers from Manali. It was declared as a wildlife sanctuary on February 26 1954 as per the Punjab Birds and Wild Animals Protection Act of 1933. Spread over 3,180 hectares, this wildlife sanctuary is breathtakingly beautiful. With the backdrop of snowcapped Himalayas and lush greenery, the wildlife sanctuary resembles paradise. It lies in the Manalsu khad catchment area. The forest consists of horse chestnut, robinia, walnut, kail, deodar, poplar and maple trees. Fir and willow trees grow abundantly in the forest. The wildlife park houses hundreds of varieties of colorful birds and rare Himalayan animals. Some of the animals which you can spot in your Manali tour of the forests are musk deer, leopard, snow leopard, Himalayan brown bear, Himalayan yellow throated marten, striped hyena, Indian hare, goral, flying fox, barking deer, Himalayan palm civet, flying squirrel, herds of the mountain goat Ibex and numerous other animals.

If you are a bird lover, you will want to live in the Manali wildlife sanctuary forever. Try spotting chakor, kingfisher, tree creepers, snow pigeons, the stunningly beautiful monal and kokla. If you choose Manali packages in summer, which is in fact the best time to visit the hill station, you can spot myriad migratory birds amidst the trees.

The sanctuary is spread over an area of 240 square kilometers. So thick is the forest in this sanctuary that sunlight does not penetrate to the ground in many places. The forests, which are part of the Western Ghats, house animals such as the spotted deer, jungle cats, sambhar deer, Indian bison, leopards, slender toris, Malayan giant squirrels and huge numbers of poisonous and non poisonous snakes. You also get to spot many species of birds.
