What to Expect

The national park is full of wildlife, most notably the wild goats (markhor). There are juniper and ash trees in the park. The animals come for feeding during the early hours of the day and camping is the best option to experience the nature. There are various other animals in the park and most notably the Persian leopard which was seen recently. The area is also dominated by partridge birds but are hard to see due to their color.


The area was declared as a national park in 1980 due to the presence of wildlife. Since then the wildlife department has taken initiatives to protect them from hunting and gradually the numbers have increased over the years. Persian leopard was said have existed here but no evidence was found until recently when the locals recorded video of it and seen foot marks of leopard family.
