Covering a vast area of over 490 sq.kms, the Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary is located only 38 km west of the Chikmanglur town in Karnataka. Surrounded by hills of the Western Ghats on all sides, the view of the Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary looks like a scene right out of a movie! The serrated mountains loom in the distance as their snow-clad peaks pierce the sky. The heaven touching apex of the mountains acts like a crown to the massive Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary.
The tanning brown forest leaves the onlooker in awe of the majesty of the skyscraper trees, the diversity of the flora and the intricacies of the landscape. The sparkling Bhadra River whistles soothingly as it passes through this sanctuary; hence giving it its name, Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary. The river is a major source of water in the sanctuary, therefore putting the life in wildlife.
The orchestra of bird songs fills the air in the forest with a sweet melody that reminds us of the simple yet unmatchable beauty of nature. Such music can never be created by us humans; it can only be appreciated in the wilderness. The wild is where the animals are at rest; it is their home. To witness these majestic creatures at ease, in all their glory is a sight of a lifetime.
