Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary is located at a distance of 2 kms from the city in the Nilgiri hills where the Eastern Ghats meet the Western Ghats. A wonderful scenic place, it is also known as the Tiger Reserve and is spread over an area of 32,155 hectares. The sanctuary is home to animals like barking deer, Mouse Deer, spotted deer, gaur, wild boar, elephants, tigers and panthers. It also houses birds like peacock, Malabar Whistling Thrush, Grey Jungle Fowl, The Magpie-robin, Brown Dove, Bulbuls, Mynahs and some migratory water birds.
This sanctuary is a part of Mudumalai National Park and was set up in 1940 becoming the first sanctuary in Southern India. Other than exploring the wildlife, one can also spend some peaceful moments with nature at Mayar waterfalls that is located inside the area. Another popular attraction that can be found here is the Theppakadu Elephant camp (made in 1971) that lodges 23 elephants.
