Nagarhole Tiger Reserve is home to tigers, elephants and wild dogs. Around monsoon (July to October) the park is usually closed due to flooding, but summer (April to May) and winter (November to February) months are a treat for wildlife enthusiasts. The park is part of the Nilgiri biosphere reserve, which stretches across the southern Indian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala, encompassing several reserves in its 5,500 sq. km, and providing a refuge to approximately100 species of mammals and 350 species of birds. Nagarahole has an astonishing abundance of wildlife, especially the Asiatic elephant. The backdrop of the distant misty blue Brahmagiri mountains, the natural sounds of the jungle, the gurgling streams and rivers, and the twittering of the birds make sure that the wildlife park remains a memorable experience. In hot summer month when the water becomes scarce in most part of the reserve, one can see the largest congregation of Asiatic elephants near the Kabini River.
