FAQs on Vedanthangal

Can you suggest an itinerary for Vedanthangal?

Reaching Vedanthangal by any form of transport is easy. It takes about 2 hours of travel from Chennai. It is best to visit Vedanthangal during evening time to catch a glimpse of the most amount of birds you can. Once there, buy tickets and enter the sanctuary. Bringing your own food is allowed in the sanctuary, so this can be a picnic spot during your visit. Exploring the whole sanctuary takes a minimum of 2 hours, after which you can move on to explore the rest of Mahabalipuram and Karikili bird sanctuary which is right about there. Don't make a whole day trip your plan because the sanctuary doesn't have enough of activity for the entire day unless of course, you are a bird watcher/ photographer.
