Description:

Ranganathittu is a bird sanctuary that can be visited throughout the year...

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.

Visited here after a long time. Enjoyed the drive from Blore to Ranganathittu. Best time to visit will be from June onwards as you might see the birds nesting. During our visit, gotta see birds n few crocodiles during boating. Good to visit with kids and family. One request to all the visitors, do not carry food which makes the... More

It is quite near Mysore and is a quaint bird santuary with pretty & well-maintained gardens. One can go on a boat ride to spot several species of nesting birds and crocodiles sunning themselves on rocks.

Though it is a bird sanctuary the best thing i liked about is the sighting of crocodiles. Thats the 1st time I saw crocs so near in their habitat. We had gone there in the evening and did see many birds. There is a bird watching point, sort of a tree house from where you get a good view of... More

We had been here with friends and families and it was a great outing on our way to Mysore. We spent couple of hours and did boating. Had lovely sighting of Crocodiles and esp few young ones. The species of birds around were good and exotic and we enjoyed the serene location. Since it was a weekend the crowd was... More

Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary is a surprisingly nice place to visit. It is neat and tidy with varied plant and tree species in addition to the splendid site of millions of migrating birds which include kingfishers, night herons, painted storks, spoonbills, hornbills, kites, eagles, darters to name a few. A boat ride across the place was very pleasant and we spotted... More

If you are bird lover you will love this place and if you are not one than you will fall in love with birdwatching. Plan your tour early morning as birds are more and humans are less. The Sanctuary closes everyday around 05.45 pm, so if you are planning to enter around 05.00 pm, don't do that. In peak season... More

The place is very good and well maintained. The main attraction is the boat ride where they take us to see the migratory birds and huge crocodiles. The boat ride seems pretty short but considering that these are rowing boats we must understand the limitations . A good place for any kinda group, family or friends close to Bangalore.

If you are interested in watching and photographing birds, chances are that you would already have heard about this place. If you are not, and are in Bangalore, and do not have much to do on a weekend, come to Ranganathittu and you won't regret it. It's about 140 kms from the city with very nice road connectivity.

This is a paradise for birds and bird lovers. We visited in December and got to see a lot of migratory birds from all over the world. There were birds visiting all the way from China, Germany, Italy, France, Siberia etc. You can take a boat ride around the islets which form a natural safe sanctuary for birds for nesting.... More

Visit to Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary must include the boat ride in the lake, which covers many islands and each island has different species of birds. You spot crocodiles as well. We took an unofficial extended boat ride wherein we were taken to more islands and pretty near to crocodiles, which was scary, but the boatman said they are scared of... More
