An important attraction of Karnataka, Nagarhole National Park is a home to a variety of birds and animals. It is a part of the Mudumalai Sanctuary and shares its boundary with the famous Bandipur National Park. Located in the Coorg and Mysore districts, the Park was established in the year 1955. Once it was the hunting reserve of the Maharajas of Mysore. The Park got its name from two Kannada words, 'Naga', meaning 'snake' and 'Hole' meaning 'streams'.

The black striped Royal Bengal Tiger is one of the most famous inhabitants of the Park. Covering an area of 247 sq km, the Park is a part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve (the largest stretch of protected forest in the country).
