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.

Trying to help my disabled father into a rowing boat was challenging but once in the boat we had a fabulous time. We opted for a private boat with an extended trip around the river and it was worth every penny. Fabulous birds to see plus crocodiles swimming/basking in the sun close to us.

Excellent place to visit if you are a bird lover. Although the variety might not be extensive, the ones that are there are in abundance. For a govt. facility, this one is surprisingly very well maintained, clean and has lots of pergolas/gazebos where you can sit and have a bite as well. We went there early in the morning, just...

Another sanctuary carrying the Dr Salim Ali endorsement.... what a beautiful place, I'd heard good reports about it but,in truth I was rather surprised by how good it was. Easy to get to from Mysore, I caught a number 307 bus. There was a bit of a walk from the main road down to to park itself but nothing too... More

This place is great for siting migratory bird between Jan-June. Its well maintained by the forest department. Offers boating which cost Rs 60 ( Jan 2017 ) per person or one can book the whole boat for Rs 1000.

Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, in my opinion, is one of the best in India. We could see there a large number of painted stork and a few marsh crocodile without using a binocular. The entire park including pathways and viewpoints were well maintained. The Interpretation Centre named after famous ornithologist Salim Ali was very informative and interesting. However, there were a... More

My second visit to this well maintained nature park on the banks of the Kaveri river. Once you enter the park you are transported to a different world of wonderful winged creatures .The highlight is the boat ride around the islets and close encounter with some massive crocodiles which lay motionless on the rocks . If you are a bird... More

Picture perfect with a boat ride. Best to go in Jan - March, as there are lot many migratory birds. Neat and clean park. Not commercialised. What is required is regular maintenance of the road leading up-to the park and cleaner toilets.

The sanctuary makes for a lovely stop on the road to Mysore from Bangalore. It is clean, and very beautiful. Make sure to take a rowing boat tour so you get to experience the birds really up close, as well as the crocodiles, which were the highlight for us. All in all a very nice experience.
