Geographically it is located in Mandla district, Madhya Pradesh. This place has a very interesting topographic location in a valley that resembles a horseshoe (considered a symbol of luck!). On each side are the forest covers of the Banjar and the Halon valleys. So the Park has got the best green carpets of both valleys!

What's more, the waters of the Surpan River has created spots of water bodies throughout the wide expanse of the 1,940sq-km Park. This ensures that there is plentiful flora and a large number of birds, not to mention watering holes for the denizens of the Park.
