Feeling chirpy? Why not forget the lions and the tigers and go off in search of our Avian friends? The river Tunga passes through this natural migratory point for median egret, darter and cormorant. July to September is the best month to visit the Mandagadde Bird Sanctuary. The forest department offers boat rides to watch birds.
Mandagadde is about 300 km from Bangalore and 32 km from Shimoga town via Thirthahalli.
