The town is dotted with an umpteenth number of waterfalls, forest stretches, and temples which also form an integral part of this cultural town in the Kodagu districts of Karnataka.

The forests are inhabited by a primitive tribe known as Jenu Kurubas.  Nagarhole National Park is also known as Rajiv Gandhi National Park and it forms a major part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. 

Nagarhole National Park was established in the year 1955 is situated at a distance of 94 KM from Mysore and somewhat the same from Madikeri as well. It is spread over an area of 643 sq. KM. The unspoiled and uninterrupted park attracts environmentalists and nature enthusiasts from all over the country.  The various safaris running in the park during morning and evening hours can be your best options to explore the flora and fauna of the region. Nagarhole encompasses lush hills, undulating green slopes, grassy swamps, slippery waterfalls and many lakes and streams.  

Other than going on a safari in Nagarhole, you can also visit nearby attractions like Iruppu falls which originates from Lakshmana Tirtha River, Rameshwara temple which is closely located to the falls.

From Jeep safaris to Elephant safaris and coracle and boat safaris; there is no dearth of greenery and wildlife. The exciting boat safaris row you through the river and keep you in the center so that you can watch the Crocodiles lazing by the bank.

As the region is quite close to Coorg, you must try the local filter coffee, it somewhat touches the benchmark. To have a local experience of living with such a vast array of flora and fauna, get enrolled in an Elephant training camp, the excitement and thrill of bathing the giant mammoths are incredible.  Mysore is the nearest railway station.  Take a bus or a cab to reach Nagarhole.

We had the most amazing stay at Jungle Inn for 2 nights.the booking process,safari,food,staff etc. Was so we'll handled.Smitha was very gracious in accommodating our requests.the property is approx 1 km from the Veeranahosahalli gate of Nagarhole tiger reserve.a lot of guests outside India also prefer the property due to its proximity to the park.also, there's a children's park, restaurant, lush green environs for guests to roam around.the rooms are spacious and well maintained too.Ashok,the manager of the property looked after us really well too. It's a great place to unwind for a weekend.if you're going for the thrill of watching tigers,pls go for the morning safari slot.recommend that you take the bus for at least 3-4 slots.
The best place where man and nature meet together, the wildlife there roams fearlessly if you are interested to see them real close I would suggest you take with the jeep safari and explored the place like anything. Must experience
The place is very scenic, The jeep was well-maintained, comfortable and spacious, Our driver cum guide was very knowledgable and informative about wildlife and even know where to find the amazing and innocent creatures along with interesting stories of the place, From close distance without disturbing them, we saw peacock, deer, elephants and many varieties of birds too... This jeep safari ride was truly amazing... with forest view from it gave us the good expereince in life... Really should visit
