Br Hills Travel Guide

For a real close brush with the jungle, get to BR Hills. BR Hills is famous for its picturesque and pristine wildlife sanctuary spread across 525 sq. km of forest covered hills. Home to magnificent elephants, sloth bears, wild boars, bison and the occasional leopard, the BRT Sanctuary is a popular getaway from Bangalore. The wild charms of the BR Hills make a great change of pace from city-life.

BR Hills is an excellent area for wildlife trekking and adventure activities. The forest cover is thick, with a wide range of flora and fauna on view.

Have you wondered why the milestones in BR Hills are painted in yellow and green instead of white? The story behind it is that once the wild elephants got so annoyed with the white milestones that they literally pull them up and fling them around like a frisbee? Therefore, the authorities ordered to use soothing colours. After all everyone wants their choice of colours painted in their homes.
