Ntangki National Park is a wildlife park located in Peren district of Nagaland, India.
Among the creatures that inhabit the park are the rare hoolock gibbon, golden langur, hornbill, palm civets, black stork, tiger, white-breasted kingfisher, monitor lizard, python and sloth bear.
The name "Ntangki" is derived from the Zeme dialect of the Zeliangrong tribe.
The then Deputy Commissioner of Naga Hills, J.H. Hutton proposed creation of a reserve forest at Ntangki- Dhansiri Valley in 1920 and sought for land. He sent a survey team to Beisumpui Village on 7 February 1921 when Dekelung was the GB of the village. The survey team with Namswange and Nkuilalung as guides took three months to carry out the survey. Thus after observing all formalities, the Governor in council declared the formation of Ntangki Reserved Forest with an approximate area of 44,800 acres in a Notification No.1186R Dated 7 May 1923, to be effective from 15 June 1923. By another Notification No.2005R Dated 18 July 1927, the Governor in council further attached another 5,120 acres of forest land to be added to the Ntangki Reserved Forest w.e.f. 15 August 1927. Later, the Government of Nagaland through a Notification No.ROP-158/74 Dated Kohima, 22 April 1975 declared the Ntangki Reserved Forest comprising an area of 20,202 hectares as wild life sanctuary, and named it as Ntangki Wildlife Sanctuary with effect from 1 April 1975. The Government of Nagaland through another Notification No.FOR-43/83 Dated 3 March 1993 again re-christened Ntangki Wildlife Sanctuary as Ntangki National Park.
