The Wayanad district is considered to be a glorious retreat in the region of Kerala. One such charming element present in the district is the Muthanga sanctuary, also known as Wayanad Wildlife sanctuary.
The Muthanga wildlife sanctuary is located at a distance of 42 kms away from Kalpetta, and lies in the Western Ghats region of the state of Kerala. The sanctuary is spread over an area of nearly 345 square kilometers, and hosts a variety of exotic flora and fauna. This is just the perfect destination for sighting birds, watching herds of elephants passing by and even spotted deers can be seen here. The region is connected to the two famous sanctuaries, located in areas of Mudumalai and Bandipur.
The highlight of the sanctuary is its wildlife safari where one can spot a number of other animals such as gaur, dholes, cheetal, tigers and jackals, to name a few. The rides on the elephants are arranged on a regular basis by taking prior permission from the Forest Department and If lucky, one can also spot the rarely seen Bengal Tiger. 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.
The flora of the wildlife sanctuary 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 November till the end of the month of May.
