about narayan sarovar sanctuary

Just like the Wild Ass Sanctuary, Narayan Sarovar Sanctuary is home to a wide species of endangered mammals, reptiles, and birds. The most prominent attraction of this sanctuary is the wild chinkara, an Indian gazelle. The climate here is harsh and only animals well-adapted to the desert climate can thrive, with extreme heat and high winds. For this reason, many species that can be seen here are not easily found anywhere else.

Most of Narayan Sarovar Santuary is thorn forest and scrub forest, with some seasonal wetlands and dry savannah-type vegetation. Among the most famous 252 species of flowering plants in the sanctuary are hermo, ber, pilu, thor, gugal, salai, ingorio, kerdo, carissa, and the invasive “gando baawal” (prosopsis juliflora).
