May to October
Kazinag National Park or Qazinag National Park is a commissioned future national park in the Baramulla district in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. It is part of a proposal for a trans-Karakoram Peace park with Pakistan.

Following the ceasefire after Kargil War, and based on mounting pressure to conserve the rare Markhor wild goat, the Government of India, based on the Wildlife Trust of India, commissioned a new national park near Uri close to the Line of Control, the international jurisdiction boundary with Pakistan.

This national park is being set up by the Jammu Kashmir Government and is the fourth in the state with an aim to conserve the rare species of goats and other species like Brown Bear, Musk Deer and Leopards. This park was decided to be made out of the Limber and Lachipora wildlife sanctuaries and the Nagnari conservation reserve.
