Wildlife and Coffee of Karnataka


India is a continent in itself and it takes a lifetime to explore it all. Not as known as other states of South India, Karnataka is a state worth visiting! If the Arabian Sea coastlines or the vibrant nightlife of Bengaluru are a must do, Shanti Travel here takes you to wild part of South India.

First, with the Bandipur National Park, considered one of the most beautiful national parks of India with its Western Ghat Mountains and the highest tiger population in India. Park is the part of Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve making it largest protected area in Southern India and largest habitat of wild elephants in South Asia. With four safaris, you encounters numerous iconic animals of mother India.

Later on, you reach Chikmagalur in the middle of high hills and misty weather. There, you explore the coffee estate and lean more about the drink we can't live without. You also explore the breathtaking surrounding and discover its abundant birdlife.
