Bandipur National Park and Tiger Reserve

This is one of the first Tiger Reserves of India which was established in the year 1931 by the Maharaja of Mysore. It was later declared a national park in 1974. This is a few kilometeres north of Mysore and shares boundaries with other sanctuaries and national parks of tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, etc. The national Park is one of the most popular in the country and the Kabini River is an added attraction here. There are about 70 tigers out here in this open area where the animals lead a free life with lots of space to roam about. The main animals here include leopards, chitahs, gaur, sloth bears, sambhars, mouse deer, wild dog, wild boar, barking deer, hyena and four horned antelope. The many species of birds include pompadour green pigeon, grey jungle fowl, honey buzzard, red headed vulture, owls and hawks.

It's still dark outside we are waiting in the lobby of our hotel fully prepared for our next journey to Ooty. We have booked a car for the trip but unluckily get cancelled so we had to arrange a new one a 13 sitter force traveler. Which schedule to pick us up at 5 am but here we are waiting and waiting in the lobby no sign of it. The owner of the car told us that we have to start early then only we are able to see the wild elephant crossing the road and we don't want to miss that. The time was running out and we are getting out of patience when at 6.30 am the car reached at our hotel. A thin dark man with mustache like that of Birappan came to greet us. We are in a hurry I think the elephant card is not in our table now. At about 9.15 am we reach the first check point of Bandipur tiger reserve which is very famous for its cheetahs. We started to spot various birds , group of monkeys , herd of deer from our car windows.
