Sukhna Wildlife Sanctuary, Chandigarh

26

The Sukhna Wildlife Sanctuary is a sprawling protected area in Chandigarh located on the north-eastern side of Sukhna Lake. A part of the Sukhna Lake catchment, this area was created by Le Corbusier in 1958 but was designated as a wildlife sanctuary only in 1998. Spread over an expanse of 2,600 hectare in the foothills of Shivaliks, Sukhna Wildlife Sanctuary is a wildlife haven with a wide variety of mammals, insects and reptiles. In fact, the sanctuary is renowned to have the highest average sambar cluster in the country.

Furthermore, the sanctuary is home to over 150 varieties of birds, besides the ones that migrate here in the months of December through February. The sanctuary is also an abode of exotic flora comprising shrubs, herbs, grasses, climbers and evergreen trees that provide an ideal habitat for wildlife.
