Detailed Overview

Bandipur is considered as one of the best and well maintained national park in India. Bandipur was established as a Tiger Reserve in 1974 under the Project Tiger initiative of the Indian Government.

Nagarhole National Park, also known as Rajiv Gandhi National Park, is a wildlife reserve in the South Indian state of Karnataka. Part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, the park is backed by the Brahamagiri Mountains and filled with sandalwood and teak trees.
