Tribal Communities

The area falling under the Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary is the habitat of two tribal communities – the Muthuva and Hill Pulaya tribes. Members of the communities still live within the sanctuary in 11 tribal settlements. The two communities have varied social, cultural and anthropological specialties. While the Muthuvas live in 7 settlements, the Hill Pulayas occupy the rest.

The tribal inhabitants would stun a traveller for their knowledge on the forests, animal behavior and climate. So don’t miss a chance to visit a tribal settlement during your visit to the sanctuary.
