Hidden because it not over crowded not on main circuit and small area. Locals have helped it in keeping well. 2 hrs drive from Chennai off the GST road.

I visited this lovely place for a nature walk I was doing with a renowned international channel. We had to go to some place of nature and beauty and we went to Vedanthangal. Unfortunately it was non season time and we missed it by just 1 week. We could spot around 4 to 5 species of birds at best. Pictures... More

Though this was supposed to be a good time to visit, there was very little water and hence very few birds that we could spot. In all, I think we managed to spot about 5 species and a colony of fruit eating bats.

It is just 100 KMs from Chennai.Many migratory birds,Ibis,Siberian Storks, can be spotted during the winter season between Nov to January.Well maintained tourist ppath with telescopes help torists spot rare birds.A good picnic spot!

This is an awesome place to visit during winters as lot of birds migrate from Russia and other countries. 7 to 8 different species can be seen and in large quantities. dont forget to carry your binacular and high zoom camera. i just cherish the moments spent here.

I visited Vedanthangal in Feb 2015 and expected to see the spectacular nestings of Pelicans and Painted Storks, highly disappointed to note that due to minimal rainfall the lake is not having adequate water and the birds decided to fly over, no one knows where they are nesting this year, like in Sultanpur and Bharatpur the officials should ensure enough...

I visited the sanctuary hoping to have an experience similar to last year and was terribly disappointed. Except for a couple of birds, the trees were completely empty. The birds have chosen not to nest in this place as the lake is dry. If you are planning to visit this place before monsoon, please avoid it.
