Mudumalai National Park is situated in the state of Tamil Nadu. One of the first wildlife sanctuaries established in India, the terrain consists of low hills, valleys, and flat lands with a few swampy areas scattered about.

The Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary is especially famous for its elephant habitat, but like its neighbour the Periyar National Park, Mudumalai is also a declared tiger reserve, the highest designation level of Indian national parks. Mudumalai is also close to Bandipur and Nagarhole National Parks, forming an important wildlife corridor across south India.

  1. I’ve been here but not in monsoon season. How dramatic is the climate change between seasons in this particular region would you say?

    • Hi Sketchpacker–There are actually two monsoon seasons in south India–the southwest, or summer monsoon (starting June) brings a relief from high temperatures and humidity with lashing rain. The north east monsoon is later in the year (October onwards). In Kerala at least, often this is with lots of wind and electric storms, but less rain. But climate is shifting everywhere, so nothing is as clear as before!
