Nagarhole National Park


Location : Karnataka
Set Up In : 1955
Attractions : Snakes, Four-Horned Antelope, Sloth Bear


Nagarhole National ParkThe Nagarhole national park lies at a distance of 96 kms from Mysore. Nagarahole is derived from the combination of two Kannada words-'nagar' meaning snake and 'hole' meaning streams and true to its name a number of streams snake through its rich tropical forests. The Nagarhaole National Park in Karnataka shares its boundaries with the famous Bandipur National Park in Karanataka, which together form a part of the Mudumalai Sanctuary in Tamil Nadu and the Wayanad Reserve in Kerala. Once an exclusive hunting preserve of the erstwhile rulers of Mysore, the terrain of this Park is gently undulating with lush green vegetation, swamps and numerous water resources, rendering it an ideal habitat for a wide variety of wildlife. Nagarhole Wildlife Sanctuary is home to the tiger along with the other wild life species and around 250 bird species.

Located aside the river Kabini, the dam and the reservoir of this mighty Kabini river act as a natural barrier, separating the two wildlife sanctuaries - Bandipur and Nagarhole - in Karnataka. Nagarhole is situated in the picturesque districts of Kodagu and Mysore in southern Karnataka. The Nagarhole National Park was first set up in 1955. In 1975 its area was increased to include a greater expanse of forest reserve. Apart from the largest Kabini river that drains the Nagarhole national park, the other three important rivers include Lakshmana, Teentha and Nagarhole. Several perennial and seasonal streams also merge into the four rivers. Nagarhole is worth visiting at the height of the dry season, when wild animals can be spotted in large numbers near sources of water.

The Wild Population of Nagarhole National Park
The forest is home to animals like jungle cat, civet, spotted deer, elephant, wild dog, flying fox, tiger, panther, the four-horned antelope, sambar, wild boar, black-napped hare, bonnet macaque, sloth bear, gaur (Indian bison), and pangolin. Cobras, crocodiles, kraits, pythons, vipers, and several species of lizards are also found here. Among the 250 bird species found here, the prominent ones are the common babbler, great Indian reed, eagle, crested hawk, bulbul, dove, crested serpent, hornbill, Malabar pied, alexandrine, peacock, bee-eater, woodpecker, warbler, golden-back parakeet, and the southern tree pie.

Viewing The Wild
