Achanakmaar Wildlife Sanctuary was constituted in 1975. It is a dense forest spread over an area of 555 km².

About 40 kilometers from Bilaspur City, Achanakmaar is the natural habitat for many wild animals including the tiger, leopard, chital, sambhar, bear, gaur etc. 

A trip to the forest is a very pleasant experience and it has all the ingredients to quench anybody's thirst for adventure. Plenty of tree cover, rough terrain, wild animals.

Watch towers have been erected at several places where the wild animals of the jungle are regularly sighted. You can perch yourself on any of the towers and keep watch.

To visit the forest you can join the guided tours into the forest from Bilaspur that are organized by the forest department. Alternately, you can explore also the jungle in your own vehicle.

To explore the jungle in your own vehicle, you will be required to take a guide provided by the department with you.

These guides are available at the checkpost at Achanakmaar and Lamni. The guide who is familiar with the jungle tracks makes sure that you do not get lost in the jungle and come back.

Rest houses are available at several places in the jungle which are available to the tourist, where you can relax during your expeditions in search of the wild.

A herbal cultivation center has been set up by the Department of Forests on the outskirts of the forest near Lamni.
