Travel through the Chota-Nagpur Dry Deciduous Forests and youÂ’ll encounter a variety of habitats. The dry forests nurture trees reaching up to 82 feet (25 m) tall. Threatened birds such as lesser floricans and large mammals such as sloth bears find refuge here. The forests range from dry to wet forests, and occasionally include even swampy areas. When you emerge from the forests you may find yourself in grasslands or scrublands of bamboo and shrubs. Throughout the area you could encounter elephants and tigers.
