South Safari
For a state with a coastline of 1,000 km, Tamil Nadu offers a surprising variety of activities to keep your feet, and definitely those of the elephant you’re riding on, firming on the ground. On the hunt for adventure, the first stop in this state is the Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary, the first in south India. Here, go on an elephant safari and travel across terrain that ranges from Hills to valleys and forests, and from watercourses to swamps to catch a glimpse of hyenas, jackals, elephants, sloth bears and tigers. Not too far away just 40 km from Ooty, is the Nilgiri Tahr Wildlife Sanctuary, a part of Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, where the fish always bite and the trekking is free. While the river and lakes of Mukurthi are perfect for trout fishing, if trekking is what you want to do, the route wends its way from parsan valley through Portimund. If Ooty seems too far away, then nearer the capital Chennai, is Kambakkam. Test your strength, Concentration and coordination on the low rocky hills of Kambakkam, which makes this the ideal
destination for rock climbing, camping and hiking. In fact, there are many new routes here for all grades of climbing. After all, a sense of adventure comes from within, not the destination.
