The Muthanga sanctuary in Wayanad attracts thousands of tourists around the year with its lush green forest that promises endearing views and experiences hard to forget for years. The Sanctuary consists of tropical moist dry deciduous, evergreen forests, bamboo thickets, and plantations, and is home to many varieties of birds and animals.
The birds and animals inside
As the day grows old, you would have turned into an avid birder. You’d smile at yourself thinking how startled you got when you heard a peacock took to its wings at your back. Parakeets, bulbuls, and so many other birds, hidden behind the foliage make the air thrum with their cries. You would not want this safari to end. Up the trees, Malabar squirrels abandon themselves in their little games. Near a pond, the jeep stops for a while with the guide reasoning that animals usually come to the banks for water. You see a few deer, looking at you with their ears perked up.
It is located 20 km east of Mananthavady on the Kodagu Road.
