The Bandhavgarh National Park is located in the north eastern border of Madhya Pradesh at the central part of India. It dwells around the Umaria-Shahdol district surrounded by the Satpura mountain range. The latitude and longitude are 23°30’ to 23°46’ N and 80° 11’ to 36°E. The park is elevated at an altitude between 410 m and 810 m. The mountains of Bandhavgarh Tala range are being composed of sandstone and the soil is sandy to sandy loam. The whole park is filled with more than 20 luminous streams out of which some of the most important streams are Johilla, janadh, charanganga, Damnar, Banbei, Ambanala and Andhiyari Jhiria. These streams then merge into the son river, an important southern tributary to the river Ganges.

Along with that many caves and lakes can also be found at the vicinity of Bandhavgarh Park specially around the area of the fort which is the most majestic and ancient part of Bandhavgarh.
