The altitude of the park varies between 450 metres and 950 metres above sea level. The two major rivers here are the Banjar and the Halon – in addition, numerous small tributaries break down through the hill gorges into the valleys, to meander through the meadows. The meadows, dotted with clumps of the great sal tree, lie interspersed with larger areas of sal forest while at higher altitudes the bamboo becomes predominant.
