Introduction

The Kazinag National Park holds the Kazinag range, which derives its name from the Kazinag spring which is situated at top of the forest. The Kajinag range forms the line of control between India   and Pakistan in Handwara Tehsil and has a height of 15524 feet. It usually remains snow clad most of the year. On the top of it stands the historical Kazinag spring and Satkohl Nag which have been providing water to Kehmil, Puhru, Mawar and Talar rivers of the district and some of the water goes to Pakistan through Nowkote. The National Park was formed by adding higher elevations of the three existing protected areas of Lachipora WLS, Limber WLS and Naganari Conservation Area.
