Nagarhole National Park

Situated within the Koodogu (Coorg) and Mysore districts of Karnataka, the Nagarhole National Park with 643.39 sq km. in area borders the Kerala State. It was originally designated as a game sanctuary in 1955 that centered on the Nagarhole settlement. The sanctuary was later extended to its present size in 1974 by combining the Mysore forests and Nagarhole Sanctuary. The park area is home to several rare species of flora & fauna.

Several shrubs belonging to Solanum, Desmodium and Helicteres sp. etc. are profusely found but weedy shrubs like Eupatorium and Lantana now dot the forest area.
