Let's start with a negative. If you take part in one of the organised walks, you are unlikely to see much in the way of big game. Animals aren't stupid, they tend to avoid people. Having said that, we had a very pleasant trek in the forest near the lake. Our party logged Sambur Deer, Guar (buffalo), Nilgiri Langur, Macaques... 更多
We got a half day treck tickets from the govt approved ktdc centre and went for this.

Dense jungle both the sides and you are boating in lake going through long... 更多
