Karnala Travel Guide

Swap the city life for some bird-song! Karnala in Maharashtra offers a refreshing, energising and completely revitalizing getaway from the hectic pace of city life - come here to watch the birds and wildlife, picnic or trek. Karnala is located in the mountain range of the Western Ghats, is surrounded by many hills and is a trekker’s paradise. It has a protected wildlife park on the Konkan coast and it’s tiny sanctuary, barely 4.8 sq km is home to over 150 resident bird species and about 37 types of avian migrants. The monsoons rouse a number of feathered musicians, amongst them the paradise flycatcher, magpie robin and the Malabar whistling thrush. This is the season when the stillness of the forest in the Karnala Bird Sanctuary is ruffled by the melodies of these songbirds and the antics of the racket-tailed drongo as it mimics the calls of other birds!

Winter heralds the journey of migratory birds as they flock to Karnala - the ashy minivet, red-breasted flycatcher, blackbird, black-headed cuckoo-shrike, blue-throat, the blue-headed rock thrush and many others. The four-horned antelope, wild boar, common langur, are amongst the commonly seen wildlife at Karnala Bird Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary is filled with the lyrics of birdsongs during the monsoon season when about 37 species of migratory birds join the 150 species of resident birds.
