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.

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 went to this place on a Diwali day. It’s a very quiet and lovely place. All nature loving people will love this place. There is boat ride for half an hour. You can see different varieties of birds here. Beautiful place for Bird’s photographers, a must visit place in Mysore.

The Sanctuary is a huge park, which itself is very aesthetically done and well maintained- alongside it runs a river which offers Bird watching up close. 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

It is a beautiful place close to nature filled with many varieties of birds. We arrived a little late and could not enjoy the boat ride in the lake (there was a long queue probably of people who had already got ticket before ticket counter was closed; though we also heard that you can still opt for boat ride without...

On the way to Mysore, it is good to spend few hours. My kids really loved this place with 20 min boat around the river. However, it is useless to wait in the long queue for more than hour to get boat. The management just need to increase the damn boats to save our time.

Ranganathittu bird sanctuary is a nice place for seeing birds. Children can have so much fun here. It includes a boating session where we can see crocodiles and birds. It has a cool atmosphere.

This was my first visit to a Bird Sanctuary and I was very impressed with firstly the way the place was maintained and secondly with so many varieties of birds and the neat way in which visitors can observe them without disturbing them. We can also do a very nice boat ride to take a closer look. The water body... More

Ours was mainly a birding trip to Ranganthettu. Boating was not on cos of high water level, but we still managed to see few birds. Brown headed barbet and asian Koel in the parking lot itself. Black headed ibis have huge colonies there, Also saw lot of Brahminy kites. Timings are a disappointment. They are from 8.30 pm to 6... More

We visited Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary on the Dusshera weekend. The place is quite clean and well maintained. The main attraction is a 20 minute boat ride that takes you around the islands in the river where migratory birds nest. The place was full of birds and we could identify at least 5 different species, including Ibis and types of herons.... More
