about indira gandhi wildlife sanctuary and national park

The Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park , earlier known as the Annamalai Wildlife Sanctuary, lies in the Western Ghats and runs contiguously with Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary and Eravikulam National Park. It is home to tigers, leopard, elephants and gaurs as well as the Nilgiri langurs, the lion-tailed macaques and various birds.Enveloped by the towering Western Ghats, it is a perfect place to spend some time with exotic fauna in nature's lap.

It is named after Indira Gandhi, who visited this place in 1961. It houses the famous scenic spot, Top Slip, which is situated at a height of 244 meters. You can enjoy exciting jeep rides into the sanctuary spotting several rare species of flora and fauna. Then there is Elephant Camp which is a major crowd puller here. The sanctuary is home to a variety of rare and endangered animals like Nilgiri tahr, Lion-tailed macaque, Asiatic wild dog, endangered Bengal tiger, Indian Pangolin, Indian Leopard, Smooth-coated Otter and Malabar Spiny Dormouse among others. Not only animals, this place is a favourite among bird watchers as well as it houses rare birds, including cormorants, partridge, spur fowl, orioles and others.
