Nagarhole National Park Travel Guide

One of India’s best managed wildlife sanctuaries, Nagarhole National Park in the southern Indian state of Karnataka is where you should head to see a host of wild animals. Welcome to the best place in the world to find the tawny black striped Royal Bengal Tiger, elusive and stealthy, noble and regal. Nagarhole National Park (Rajiv Gandhi National Park) is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve like its neighbour Bandipur.

Stretching for 640 sq km north of the river Kabini, this park has all the resident wildlife of the Nilgiri area. The Tahr, langur, bison, leopard, Asian elephant, wild boar, deer, dhol (wild dog) and a variety of bird life enrich this moist deciduous forest and thrill the wildlife enthusiast. In fact, the name Nagarhole is derived from a local river Nagarhole, the word naga meaning snake and hole referring to water-body in the local language. Besides the Nagarhole River, Nagarhole has three rivers coursing though it - Kabini, Lakshmana and Teentha.

Tropical and deciduous forests and belts of swampy ground, and a host of wildlife ensure this is a must see when in Coorg.
