Owner description: Ranganathittu is a bird sanctuary that can be visited throughout the year by bird lovers. Easily accessible from Bangalore, enroute to Mysore, visiting this place is a great option for both children and adults. Visit early in the morning and hire a boat. November heralds in the winter migrants who stay put until March, adding to the already numerous varieties of birds you can see here.

A nice quiet place. The only noise one can hear is that of the birds. The boat ride for about 45 minutes is enjoyable. The boatman doubles up as a guide to take you around the lake. He is knowledgeable too and has the names of the birds on his fingertips. Not only that. He give you the history of... More

During boating you can get close to the small islands on which the birds make their habitat. There is a fee of 50Rs per head for normal boating which will give you around 15-20 min of boat ride. You can... More

Brilliant place for the bird lovers and photographers. There's a nominal entry fees to the park. Boating can be take by paying an extra cost, I would recommend to take special boat for around Rs. 1000, which includes 45-60 mins of boat ride. The boat ride is on the river cavery and beware of the crocodiles in the water. you... More

After visiting Srirangapatna while returning to Mysore this is a very good place to visit. Boating is highly recommended as one can see different types of birds in their natural environment & surprise package is live crocodile. However it is safe.

Ãt about a 2 hours driving distance from Bangalore, this is a short, quick day getaway on a weekend. We were lucky to have gone on a cloudy day, saved us the heat and had a chance to spot some very good migratory birds.

We were told that we this was the perfect time of the year to watch migratory birds from as far as Russia. Our boatman was very knowledgeable and knew every species of bird. Our... More
