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.

Fantastic day trip. Kids loved being very very close to a crocodile, while being secure on the boat. Tip: be early, try to be the very few first ones to go in and do multiple boat rides: it is worth it.

This bird sanctuary is the largest one in Karnataka and is a paradise for bird enthusiasts. After crossing Srirangpatna(from Bangalore) look on your right for the board giving direction to the sanctuary. Ample parking space available. There is a restaurant too. The major attraction is the lake where water birds come in large number, in hundreds and thousands in the... More
