Bandipur National Park


Location : Karnataka
Area : 874.20 Sq.Km
Best Time to Visit : March - August


Bandipur National ParkIn Karnataka lies one of India's best-known wildlife reserves - Bandipur National Park. It is situated where the Deccan Plateau rises to meet the wrinkled folds of the Western Ghat Mountains. It is situated within Chamarajanagar district in the southern Indian state of Karnataka. It is one of the finest habitats of the Asian elephant. Drained by the Moya River, its open forest makes it easy for visitors to see the elephant and gaur in natural surroundings. There is another attractive wildlife park nearby at Nagarhole. Though separate entities, these are part of a larger contiguous wildlife reserve that includes the Mudumalai Sanctuary in Tamil Nadu and the Wayanad Reserve in Kerala. Both the parks are easily accessible from Mysore.

A tracing of recent history, Bandipur became one of the first of India's Tiger Reserves in 1973. Bandipur is the southernmost of the nine reserves specially established under Project Tiger, when in a 1974 declaration under the Wildlife Protection Act it was notified as a National Park. The park host huge congregations of large mammals, especially the elephant and the gaur. The onset of pre-monsoon showers in April, Bandipur begins to unfold in all its glory. The park supports a remarkable variety of flora and fauna, making it a veritable paradise for wildlife. This unique feature makes a breathtaking spectacle, and is almost the only one of its kind in Asia.

A dam on the Kabini and its picturesque reservoir separate the two parks. There is a gradual shift in the vegetation from open dry deciduous forests to tropical mixed deciduous forests. These diverse habitats support an enormous diversity of animal life. In the dense moist deciduous forests of this area the upper canopy reaches heights of 30m and valuable hardwoods like teak and rosewood are also to be found here. The 874.20 sq. km. Bandipur National Park, with its open grassy woodland, lies to the south of the Kabini River while Nagarhole, 643.39 so. km. in area, to the north of the river, has taller and denser forests.
