Wayanad Travel Guide

The section of the Nilgiri Bio Reserve that falls in Kerala is called the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary. Wayanad is a rainforest sanctuary, situated between Bandipur National Park (in Karnataka) and Mudumalai Sanctuary (in Tamil Nadu). The Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary stretches over an area of 345 sq km, a densely wooded district of rosewood, teak, bamboo and other deciduous trees, throbbing with a fascinating range of creatures, large and small. Tigers, of which the sanctuary has a fair number, are amongst its most elusive denizens. Elephants in particular are Wayanad's star performers. Other animals that roam this wildlife sanctuary include leopards, monkeys, deer, bison, wild dogs and hundreds of birds and reptile.

For those in love with wildlife and nature- experience the wildlife in the pristine environment of Wayanad as it roams free in the sanctuaries of Muthanga, Begur and Tholpetty.
