Besides being the national animal of India, tigers are an endangered species and need special reserved areas for protection. After implementing Project Tiger, there have been several tiger reserves set up in India. Karnataka is also ready to introduce a new tiger safari zone in Chamarajanagar.
Chamarajanagar District In Karnataka To Get A New Tiger Safari Zone
The Old Mysore region is about to undergo a significant makeover in the tourism sector, which will undoubtedly strengthen the local economy. According to recent news sources, the state of Karnataka is developing a bold proposal to establish a new tiger safari zone in the southern district of Chamarajanagar.
This programme has been structured to emulate the achievements of other well-known reserves such as Bandipur and Nagarahole. The planned safari, according to reports, will cover a vast 18 km and start from Lokkanahalli in the PG Palya Range in the Male Mahadeshwara Hills (MM Hills) wildlife division.
Along with providing an opportunity to see a variety of species, the safari will take guests through thick, intimidating woods where they may also study the fascinating remains of Stone Age architecture.
Additionally, according to reports, this safari is slated to begin the first week of December. It will make its debut with a single vehicle and run under a two-month investigation phase. The road is strategically located along the elephant corridor, making it a good place for encounters with wild elephants, according to Santhosh Kumar G, deputy conservator of forest for MM Hills Wildlife Division.
In addition, visitors may expect to see tigers, Indian hares, leopards, spotted and sambar deer, Indian guar, and several bird species. Notable Stone Age buildings along the route include a camp for anti-poaching and burial grounds.
The Site Is Located Near Popular Tourist Spots
This effort is positioned to facilitate the development of a Kollegal tourism circuit that is intended for easy exploration in a single day. The safari site is ideally situated close to well-known tourist attractions including the Gundal Dam, Bharachukki Falls, and the Dhondenling Tibetan Camp.
Stakeholders in the local tourism industry are optimistic about this new safari’s transformative power and anticipate more tourists visiting Kollegal and its surroundings. The Chamarajanagar tiger safari has the potential to be a significant addition to the region’s ever-expanding tourism offerings. It presents a new appeal to both history buffs and wildlife enthusiasts. This is due to its unique combination of rich biodiversity, historical remnants, and proximity to currently operating attractions.
