Mudumalai Tiger Reserve
Nestled in the Nilgiri hills along the Western Ghats in Tamil Nadu, Mudumalai Tiger Reserve is contiguous to Bandipur National Park. On the west, the reserve shares its boundary with Kerala and on the northern side with Karnataka.
It was declared a tiger reserve in 2007 to protect the endangered Royal Bengal tigers. As a part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, the Mudumalai reserve offers exciting opportunities to see tigers in India.
The protected area supports a sizable population of mammals, reptiles and birds. Gaur (Indian bison), wild boar, sambar deer and barking deer are some of the commonly spotted animals in the reserve.
The presence of a wide variety of birds in this forest attracts a lot of birders. You may spot birds like Malabar trogon and Malabar grey hornbill, which are found in the Western Ghats region.
