A drive to Muthanga is one of the most celebrated Wayanad destinations. Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary shares its border with Nagarhole National Park And Tiger Reserve, Mudumalai, and Bandipur Tiger Reserve And National Park. A major part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, the Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary was founded in 1973. Among Wayanad things to do, a drive-through Muthanga Forest comes first and foremost. The region is the perfect spot to explore wildlife as well as the tribal lifestyle. Declared as the second biggest wildlife sanctuary, Muthanga promises an exciting view of pachyderms like Indian Bison, elephants, tigers, and Panthers and more. The area is also home for deers, jungle cats, civet cats, monkeys, wild dogs, snakes, bears, and birds like cuckoos, peacocks, owls, vultures and more.
Wildlife photographers and nature lovers are also keen to explore the sanctuary which gives an exciting opportunity for photography and animal sighting. A jeep safari within the forest region is an opportunity to see animals and birds with naked eyes. Most travelers get excited about Wayanad because of the adventurous spirit Wayanad sightseeing offers.
