Now, no more visit to Lions at Gir; You’ll be shocked to know the reason!
The Gir National Park, which is home to over 520 Asiatic lions, has remained shut for tourists, both domestic and foreigners. The Gir National Park has been remained closed from June 16 to October 15.
The park is closed during this period every year as it is the breeding season for many animals, including the big cats. Also, the roads become patchy and muddy during monsoon seasons and are considered unsafe for driving vehicles. The national park, located in Junagadh district, is the only home for Asiatic lions in the world. This is the very reason that pulls tourists in huge numbers every year and makes the open jeep safari main attractions of this place.
The Gir sanctuary, located at Sasan in Junagadh district, is the only home for the Asiatic lions and attracts a large number of tourists from India and abroad.
