Why Nagarhole National Park
Bandipur's northern neighbour, Nagarhole ("Snake River") National Park, extends 640 sq km north from the Kabini River, dammed in 1974 to form a picturesque artificial lake. Nagarhole wildlife National Park is situated just 80 km away from Mysore City of Karnataka. The area comprises the habitat of several rare and endangered species, notably the tiger. Much of it has been protected from the ill effects of development because Indian royalty used the area as a hunting park. Nagarhole is part of the protected area complex that includes Bandipur National Park, Wynad Sanctuary and Mudumalai Sanctuary.

Located within the Koodogu (Coorg) and Mysore districts of Karnataka, the wildlife sanctuary borders the Kerala State. It was originally designated as a game sanctuary in 1955 that centered on the Nagarhole settlement. The sanctuary was later extended to its present size in 1974 by combining the Mysore forests and Nagarhole wildlife Sanctuary.
