Part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve

Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary

Adjacent to the Bandipur National Park, Wayanad is a rare protected patch of Malabar rainforest that is home to Nilgiri langur, Malabar grey hornbill and many others of the region’s endemics.

Part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve

This Project Tiger reserve shares a border with Bandipur to the north and Mudumalai to the east.

While the whole Nilgiri Biosphere is home to large herds of elephants, packs of Dhole, Leopards, Sloth bears, Gaur and Tiger, the jungles of Wayanad are more humid than the other reserves adjacent to it. This makes it a particular attraction for those who seek rainforest species such as Malabar trogon, Malabar pied hornbill, Malabar grey hornbill, king cobra, Nilgiri langur and brown palm-civet.
