Uttar Kannada , Karnataka

Dandeli is a beautiful place in the Uttar Kannada district of Karnataka in the Western Ghats. In fact it has so much of natural splendour that the government decided that it needed to be preserved as a wildlife sanctuary. This is a place which is not only rich in the flora and fauna but it is also culturally rich as it wasa big hub of migration from many of the northern states. Thus there is a huge diversity of people living here speaking a lot of language and creating a culturally rich community. The wildlife sanctuary is one of the tiger reserves with animals such as leopards, black panthers, elephants, gaur, deer, antelopes, and bears found all over this area. The one draw to this sanctuary is the black panther which today is one of the rarest animals in the world. It is a magnificent beast and a sighting is worth going to this wildlife sanctuary indeed. The jungle is also a home for around 300 species of birds making it a cacophony with so many creatures all around. The sanctuary provides rafting opportunities at the Virnoli Rapids connected to the Kali River. This is oneof the most famous rivers for rafting with the rapids escalating to a high degree. The river rafting in Kali river is famous all over the country. Tourists can also undertake nature walks, boating, bird watching, crocodile spotting and angling. There is a variety of activities to be done in a place so rich with natural wonders. All you need to do is pack your bags and head to this destination which is quite easily accessible and will make you want to start living life once more.
