Pench National Park is located in the Seoni and Chindwara districts of the state of Madhya Pradesh. The park is located to the south of Satpura hills. It is located in the southern lower reaches of the Satpura hill ranges, which form the catchment of the Pench River. The geological processes in the past have resulted in formation of series of hills and valleys. There are 10 villages in the national park, one inside the park (Fulzari) and nine on the boundry. The topographical configuration varies from plain to hilly terrain with vertical slopes at places and, thus, making them difficult to access, during rough weather conditions. Water bodies are found in the form of streams and 'nallahs'. Most of them are seasonal and meander in full zest during the monsoons. Pench River, which serves as the major water source, dries up in April end. Then, water pools known as 'dohs' serve as water suppliers for the fauna of the park, along with Pench Reservoir. A few perennial streams also exist in the park areas. The sources however, are not suitably distributed, leading to water scarcity in certain parts of the park areas. Creation of waterholes in such areas is one of the management priorities of the park management for fulfilling the need of water.
