Nagarhole National Park, also known as Rajiv Gandhi national park is in Karnataka. It is one the most famous tiger reserves in India. Nagar means snake and hole means stream, which is appropriate since Nagarhole has many serpent like streams within its enclosure.

The landscape is green throughout, mostly in the form of swamps, trees and wetlands. The park was first formed in 1955 and then extended again in 1975, when it was officially recognized as a national park. Though the elephant and the tiger are its more famous and more numbered inhabitants, the park is host to a variety of fauna like the leopard, wild boar, gaur, spotted deer, Indian wild dog, hyena, antelopes, monitor lizards, marsh crocodile to name a few. And it doesn’t have any shortage of birds as well. There are about 250 species of birds in Nagarhole, including exotic ones like the blue-bearded bee-eater, scarlet minivet and Malabar whistling thrush, ospreys, woodland birds, painted bush quail, which makes Nagarhole an ideal getaway for bird enthusiasts.
