Set off on a wildlife safari in the untamed land of Muthanga Sanctuary, also known as Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary. Lolling in the Western Ghat region of Kerala, it is spread over an area of nearly 345 sq km and has a variety of exotic flora and fauna. The sanctuary is declared as a site of Project Elephant in the year 1992. The Project Elephant’s main objective was to prevent the ruthless killing of the elephants for commercial reasons. This is the reason that a large number of elephants can be located roaming around in a carefree manner.
There are two timings for entry, from 7am to 9am or 3pm to 5pm. At this sanctuary you may spot a number of animals such as Gaur, Dholes, Cheetal and Jackals, to name a few. If you are lucky, you may also spot the Bengal Tiger.
The flora particularly consists of deciduous forests mostly found near the western coast. The plantations of coffee and tea are also present, which fills the sanctuary with their aroma. The best time to visit this beautiful place is during the month of October till the end of the month of May.
