Bandipur Travel Guide

Bandipur is a wonderful wildlife centre established in 1931. Tourists from all over the world visit this place to look up to the breathtaking beauty of nature and also to enjoy a quiet vacation far from the hustle and bustle of the city. This is situated in the district of Chamarajanagar.

Bandipur was established by the Maharajas of Mysore and is located in the Nilgiris. The Kabini, Moyar and Nugu Rivers drain the area. Besides the rivers, there are many seasonal streams fluxing through the region. This place is under Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve and is also the first Biosphere Reserve of the country. Bandipur was the preferred site for Project Tiger.

This is an initiative taken by the Government of India to protect the endangered species. The number of tigers has multiplied ever since. The place is also home to a large number of animals like Elephants, Hornbill, Sambar, Wild Dog, Giant Squirrel, Deer and Partridges. There are also a few endangered species including Four Horned Antelope, Panther, Sloth Bear, Python, Mouse Deer, Pea Fowl and many more. Besides faunae, tourists can see some exotic trees including Bamboo, Sandalwood, Teak, Honne and Mathi.

Two wildlife sanctuaries are also attached to this place: the Waynad Sanctuary and the Mudumalai Sanctuary. This place mostly has an open forest area which makes it easy for the tourists to see animals. There is no human settlement inside the Reserve but there are almost 200 villages around the area. This place makes for fantabulous tourist spot and is a must-visit to soak in the beauty of nature.
