4 Must Visit National Parks in South India
2016-10-20

India is a land blessed with perennial rivers that flow through thick forests. As a result of this magnificent natural phenomena, many exotic species of birds and animals thrive in these jungles. However, rapid urbanization has threatened the survival of various endangered animals. Visit any of these forest reserves for a better look at our nation’s efforts to preserve our precious wildlife.

 

Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary
Located atop of Cardamom Hills and Pandalam Hills in the Idukki district of Kerala, Periyar National Park is spread across 777 sq. km and a 26 sq. km artificial lake created by the British in 1895. There are 35 species of mammals recorded in the park, including many threatened species. Periyar is home to bisons, sambars, wild boars, langurs, elephants and tigers. It is also one among the 48 tiger reserves in India.

 

Gulf of Mannar Marine National Park
Gulf of Mannar can be found at a short distance of 10 km away from the east coast of Tamil Nadu. It consists of 21 small islands and coral reefs. Dominated by mangroves off the coast, this marine national park is a protected area with high diversity of plants and animals such as the green turtle, clownfish, bottlenose dolphin and sperm whale. It is also an important feeding ground for dugongs.

 

Nagarhole National Park
Located on the foothills of the Western Ghats, Nagarhole is one among the most visited national parks in the country. It is a part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve and its small streams and valleys lure leopards, elephants, tigers and bisons out of the jungles. It is currently under consideration by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee for selection as a World Heritage Site.

 

Bandipur National Park
Bandipur is a visual feast for nature lovers. Situated in the Chamrajnagar district of Karnataka, Bandipur is one of the oldest wildlife sanctuaries in India. It harbors a population of endangered tigers large enough to declare it a tiger reserve and is a part of Project Tiger. Four beautiful rivers flow through this national park, namely, Moyar, Kabini, Moolehole and Nugu.

 

Head to any of these national parks down south to rediscover nature in all its majesty. You’ll absolutely be thrilled to see these sights.
