Jessore Sloth Bear Sanctuary derives it name from Jessore hills (2nd highest hill of Gujarat). Very few know that the highest peak of the area is only next to the Girnar in height in the State. The hilly terrain and dry mixed deciduous forests of the area supports a diversity of flora and fauna, with Sloth Bear as the flagship species, Leopard, hyena, wild boar, blue bull, porcupine etc., are amongst other mammalian species found in the area. Jessore harbours a wide diversity of avifauna including some of the rare species like Red Spur-fowl, Sirkeer Cuckoo, Vultures and Ultramarine blue flycatcher. A trek of 4-5 kms from the foothill of the mountain to Mahadev temple ( Kedarnath ) is indeed rewarding. The sanctuary is recognized as an area of high conservation value due to its rich medicinal plant flora. The campsite is located in picturesque surroundings on the bank of a lake in foothills.
