An Insight into Madumalai Tourism

A Memorable Jaunt into the Protected Abode of India’s Bengal Tigers!

A declared tiger reserve, the Mudumalai National Park & Wildlife Sanctuary lies on the north-west of the Nilgiri Hills, about 150 kilometers of Coimbatore city in Tamil Nadu state. Mudumalai Tiger Reserve is much like a quintessential Indian painting of landscape or wild scenery that has been given life; thin & tall trees and sunlight cutting through those spindly trees and lush green shrubs concealing deer and much more, as the artist’s imagination runs. Government figure says there are more than 50 tigers here, making Mudumalai one of India's good tiger population density reserves. None the less, this reserve is Tamil Nadu's top wildlife-spotting place.

Rich in flora & fauna this protected area is an abode to several endangered and vulnerable species. The flora of this National Park can be segregated into three categories such as southern tropical dry thorn tropical moist deciduous and tropical dry deciduous. Different wild species of ginger, pepper, cinnamon, guava, turmeric, mango, and rice are also found here. All these make this zone a suitable habitat for numerous birds, animals, rodents and insects.
