Two-day Adventure camp at Nagarhole - [24th - 25th March 2012]- Registration is on
About the place:
The Nagarhaole National Park shares its boundaries
with the famous Bandipur National Park in Karanataka, which together form a part
of the Mudumalai Sanctuary in Tamil Nadu and the Wayanad Reserve in Kerala.
About 643 kms in area, Nagarhole Wildlife Sanctuary is home to the Tiger along
with the other wild life species and around 250 bird species. Located aside the
river Kabini, the dam and the reservoir of this mighty Kabini river acts as a
natural barrier separating the two wildlife sanctuaries - Bandipur and Nagarhole
- in Karnataka.
Also bordering the state of Kerala, the Nagarhole National Park was designated as a game sanctuary in 1955. In 1974, it was extended to its present size combining the Mysore forests within the Nagarhole Wildlife Sanctuary. The deep valleys and the mesmerizing landscapes in the sanctuary make it a picture perfect destination in every manner. Apart from the largest Kabini river that drains the Nagarhole national park, the other three important rivers include Lakshmana, Teentha and Nagarhole. Several perennial and seasonal streams also merge into the four rivers.
|Still water (backwater) rafting: Water rafting means cruising down the gushing waters of river in an inflatable rubber raft or water kayak over roaring waves and swirling fast-moving water for the excitement of a lifetime.|
Jungle Safari: Wandering about in a wildlife sanctuary and witnessing the wildlife therein can be quite an adventurous experience. Whether it is done while riding on an elephant's back, or from a watch tower or from a boat, the thrill that one can have while spotting herds of wild elephants, deer and predators catching their preys in their natural habitat is much more exciting than watching a wildlife documentary on television.
|Rappelling: Rappelling also has a psychological application in training programmes in encouraging trust in unfamiliar systems and protocols and following them well to achieve something that seems extremely difficult at first sight|
