Unlike American National Parks, the Indian ones are mostly protected areas for endangered wild life. There are 103 such National Parks now and more are expected to be added to the list.
I have been only to two of them and that too for very brief visits over two week ends. The Jim Corbett National Park and The Sultanpur National Park.
I never had the financial resources to spend more time in any of these parks as every possible vacation was used to visit family or to go for meditation camps. By the time I could afford to go, I had had my hips replaced and roughing it out camping in such parks was completely out of the question. My loss.
I hope that my children will visit more of them.

Years ago when we were coming back from France we visited national parks in Uganda, but we didn’t have to rough it. We stayed in reasonably comfortable accommodations. It sounds as if some of the offerings in the Jim Corbett National Park are more luxurious: http://www.corbettnationalpark.in/resorts-hotels-corbett.htm
Almost all the parks now have very comfortable lodging and boarding facilities. I simply cannot get myself to think of visiting them to go about trying to catch sight of the wild life.
national parks to protect and cherish your wildlife … nothing more noble or wonderful!

Yes, one among the many other noble things that we do down here! And there are plenty of ignoble things we do too.
our national parks don’t really do “wild animals” they are more about environment conservation – many of them offer walking tracks and such surrounding…
There are trekking facilities in many places here too but they are not marked as national parks.
