Mudumalai Tiger Reserve to reopen on May 1

Special Correspondent

Udhagamandalam: The Mudumalai Tiger Reserve will be thrown open to tourists on May 1.

Its Field Director Rajiv K. Srivatsava said that the reserve, which had remained closed since the beginning of April, due to dry conditions was now wearing a verdant look thanks to the recent wet spell.

Facilities like elephant rides and van rides will be provided.

“We expect about 1,000 visitors on an average to visit the reserve everyday,” he said adding that suitable arrangements have been made. Chances of sighting animals, including elephants, Indian gaur, and deer have increased considerably.

Census

The reserve would be closed between May 3 and 8 on account of the annual animal census.

It would be conducted by the Forest Department along with the Nilgiri Wildlife and Environment Association and other volunteers.
