Pench In popular culture & History
Pench forest reserve, is one of the places that may have inspired Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. The Pench National Park provided the location used by the BBC for the innovative wildlife series Tiger: Spy in the Jungle, a three-part documentary narrated by Sir David Attenborough which used concealed cameras, placed by elephants, in order to capture intimate tiger behavior. The programme aired for the first time in April 2008.
This forest inspired Ruyard Kipling to write the famous novel The Jungle Book. Earlier till 1977 the park was a sanctuary but the status was raised to of National park in 1983. This is the 19th project tiger reserve in India and was declared so in 1992.
