Reserved Forest: No One is allowed to walk through the Reserved Forest in Mudumalai. Everyone is advised to stay in the Resorts Regognized by the Government.
Safaris: The National Park organizes van safaris into unspoiled sanctuary areas, either from 6:30–8.30 a.m. or 3 to 6 p.m. The ride usually lasts anywhere between 45 minutes to an hour and spotting game is pretty common. These trips are perfect for wildlife buffs who wish to spot the spotted deer, bear with a bear, or even see something as boring as a boar. Alternatively, you could tour the jungle Mowgli style, atop a tame elephant! Four people and a trained mahout will be carried by our resident gentle giant into the jungle, away from the beaten track, along the road not taken. Because the elephant actually goes through the jungle, chances of seeing game at close quarters are pretty good.
Elephant Camp: Visit forest department elephant camp where around 29 pachyderms are cared for and trained. You can witness them give a thorough cleaning, followed by a pooja (offering to the deity) by the elephants themselves and culminating in feeding them. Believe it or not, each have their own diet on an everyday basis to adhere to. But beware, lest you get taken for a ride!
Visit To: Like the famous Darjeeling tea, the Nilgiri Tea plantations are famous for its green leaf tea. A visit to a local tea, coffee or pepper plantation as a half day or full day trip could be organized. The trip gets all the more exciting and refreshing when one actually gets to visit a factory and observe the journey of the leaf through different processes before its end.
OOTY: A day trip to Ooty, one of the many hill stations explored and discovered by the British can also fit into the agenda. It includes a visit to the renowned botanical gardens, boating on the lake, toda museum, etc Do some shopping for silver jewellery and don’t forget to leave Ooty without a bag of home made chocolates, some eucalyptus and citronella oils.
