Site description Intanki was declared as a Reserve Forest in May 7, 1923, and later adjoining forest patches were added in July 18, 1927. However, the first working plan was implemented during 1963- 64. Earlier, selective felling was carried out between Monglu and Intanki rivers. But in 1975, when the area was declared a sanctuary, this was stopped. Thereafter, more forest roads, artificial salt licks and camps for protection were created. In 1995, the Government of Nagaland upgraded it to a National Park. The northern part of Intanki is a low rainfall zone of the northeast. Intanki is contiguous with Dhansiri Reserve Forest of Assam (Karbi Anglong) to the north. The Dhansiri River marks the boundary between these two areas. Many rivers and streams intersect the Park, among them Monglu, Intanki and Duilong are the major tributaries of Dhansiri river. The terrain is undulating and hilly, with bamboo groves. The Range Office is located about 40 km from Dimapur. The forest is tropical semi-evergreen and tropical moist deciduous type.
