Mudumalai, Tamil Nadu [Direction]

Situated about 150 kilometers north-west of Coimbatore city in Tamil Nadu, the Mudumalai National Park & Wildlife Sanctuary, also a declared tiger reserve, lies on the northwestern side of the Nilgiri Hills.

Divided into five ranges, namely Masinagudi, Thepakadu, Mudumalai, Kargudi, and Nellakota, the sanctuary, shares its boundaries with the states of Karnataka and Kerala.

One of the most famous destinations to visit in Tamilnadu, the protected area, is home to several endangered & vulnerable species, including the Indian elephant, Bengal tiger, gaur, and Indian leopard. Along with critically endangered Indian white-rumped vulture & long-billed vulture, there are at least 266 species of birds in the sanctuary.

To conserve the country’s dwindling tiger populations, the Tamil Nadu state government declared Mudumalai to be a tiger reserve in April 2007, under section 38V of the Wildlife Protection Act of 1972.

There are three main types of forest in the Mudumalai National Park, namely tropical moist deciduous, tropical dry deciduous forest, and southern tropical dry thorn forests.

Along with 50 species of fishes, 227 species of birds, and 55 species of mammals, there is a high diversity of animal life in the sanctuary.
