5 Ways You Can Take a Break from Life in the Lap of Nature in Mudumalai
Mudumalai is known for its National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary and is a place where you can go, if no crowd and unabashed nature is what you seek.
1. Kalhatti Water Falls
This beautiful waterfall is located at around 2,000 metres above the sea level and the entire route runs through the Kalhatti Ghats. It is considered an ideal destination for trekking too.
2. Theppakadu Elephant Camp
The camp derives its name from the two words, ‘Theppam’ and ‘Kadu’, meaning pond and forest respectively. A documentary of the park in English language is screened. The park authorities organize the Elephant Show on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Watch out for the elephant race and elephant soccer here.
3. Moyar Falls
Situated in the Mudumalai National Park and sandwiched between endless rows of trees and forests, these falls are nature at its very pristine! To reach then, you’ll have to traverse the Moyar canyon which is a beautiful deep gorge cut out by the Moyar River.
4. Needle Rock view point
Almost always shrouded in mist, the needle rock view point is a place you’d love to be at if you love stunning sunsets and pleasant climate. The trek till the point is akin to walking among the clouds and there’s incredible scenery at every step.
5. Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary
Established in 1940 for preserving varied flora and fauna, the national park was also declared a Tiger Reserve. The sanctuary received its name from the word Mudumalai which means situated on the first hill. The five different ranges of this sanctuary are the Kargudi, Thepakadu, Masinagudi, Mudumalai and Nellakota.
