| BANDIPUR NATIONAL PARK
Far from the din of the city, lies a calm, peaceful land all by itself. Nestling some very rare animals and birds.
The Bindipur National Park is one of the most fascinating wild-life centers. Established in 1931 by the Mysore Maharajas, this park is nestled in the foothills of the Nilgiris.
As you penetrate deep into the forest through the well laid-out roads, you can almost here the mute conversations between the animals and the trees. They say that the flora and fauna here exist in perfect harmony. And it is because of this that the spot here was chosen as the center for the Project Tiger. And since then the Tiger population has almost doubled.
Of course there's a lot, lot more to discover. Peafowl, partridges, quail, hornbill, giant squirrel, dhole( wild dog), elephants, sambar, barking deer.......... An endless variety of wildlife flourish here. And the trees sheltering them are even more beautiful. Teak, rosewood, honne, mathi, bamboo and sandal.
What's more, you can take a safari on elephant back to make your visit memorable.
