The best place to see birds and crocodiles. Though its only 40 acres in area, about 40,000 birds nest here in winter. You can visit this sanctuary at any season.
It is located about 16km from Mysore. Salim Ali requested Maharaja Vadayar to convert it into the sanctuary in 1940.
60 rupees boat ride will cover 25% of the area and 1000 rupees private boat ride which will take you deep.
Do visit there and get amazed at the fabulous beauty. The crisping of birds will make u mesmerized and the crocodiles will sail only a few feet from you. It's entirely different world on this lake. An experience one should enjoy in his/her lifetime.
