Anshi, a small town in the Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka, lies on the scenic banks of river Kali and is located off the famous Karwar-Londa Highway. Designated as an important National Park in the year 1987, it sprawls across an area of 340 sq km. The Dandeli Wildlife Division attributed to the Karnataka Forest Department is made up of Dandeli Wildlife Division of the Karnataka Forest Department. And the adjoining Anshi NP. The deep valleys of the region have precipitous slopes and dense vegetation. Mathi, hindal, rosewood, nandi and teak trees grow in abundance here and are flanked by varieties of acacia, bamboo, lantana and other species of flora. The creepers, vines, giant trees and lush undergrowth of the forests make the region dark and impenetrable.
The park is home to the residents of the Anshi Village and the Forest Range Office, with the Anshi Nature Camp located 3 km away. This sanctuary is criss-crossed by several perennial streams, trekking trails and other attraction s worth seeing. Jeeps hired from the towns of Karwar and Dandeli help you explore the area in an affordable way—with daily charges varying from INR 800 to 1,000. A must visit indeed!
