Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary

#4 of 6 things to do in Nagarhole

Owing its name to the Brahmagiri Peak, with Nagarhole National Park to its North-West, covering an area of 181 square km, Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary is an experience in itself. Believed by the locals that seven sages meditated at the highest point of the hill, the sanctuary was established in 1974 and is enclosed with plantations of coffee and cardamom. It houses creatures like macaques, gaurs, elephants, tigers, panther, felines, wild pigs, Nilgiri langurs and sloth bears. Birds like  black bulbul, Malabar trogon, and emerald dove are also sometimes spotted in the sanctury. Cobra, python and king cobra are some reptiles that can aslo be seen here. The sanctuary includes evergreen forests, patches of grasslands and bamboos making it a beautiful site to bask in the natural beauty of the surroundings. A best place to trek through the thicks forests, this is the best way to escape the hustle of the city.
