Places to see in Masinagudi
For adventure seekers Masinagudi is the best place to get your adrenaline rush pumping. Just like Dandeli or Jim corbett National park, Masinagudi is one of the best hill station to visit the wildlife in real in the Western Ghats which is one of the largest rainforest in India.
#1 Vibhuti Malai
Located in the centre of Masinagudi, Vibhuti malai offers you a panoramic view of the surroundings. This place can be reached by walk or Jeep and it takes 20 minutes to reach the top where you’ll find a small temple. The temple construction was sponsored by the famous actor Mithun Chakraborty.
The reason behind the name ‘Vibhuti malai’ was a kind of scary story narrated by the locas over there and I don’t want to be the spoiler, you can ask them directly.
#2 Kalhatty Waterfalls
This is located enroute from Ooty-Masinagudi and it takes 20 minutes trek down the hills to reach the falls. Best time to visit the falls is post Monsoon and you’d be surprise with this Majestic waterfalls fierce pouring.
Don’t be confused with the Kalhatty giri waterfalls located in Chikmagalur, this falls is located in the Nilgiris Dist. Here’s a video that we shot during our trip;
#3 Elephant Feeding Camp
This is one must visit place when you’re in Masinagudi where you can see the experts feeding the Elephants. They also showcase how the food is being prepared and there’s a small entry ticket cost to enter the campus. You can listen to different stories of Elephants from them which will make you fall in love towards these giant animals.
Activities to do in Masinagudi
The most common activities to do in Masinagudi is Jeep safari and trekking to watch the wildlife.
#1 Trekking in the wild
After the restrictions posted in Masinagudi by the forest dept, it is only allowed to trek in the allowed routes and I’d not recommend any unauthorized trekking trials.
When I was in Masinagudi we trekked in the early morning, reason is the wild life can be sighted roaming here. Early morning we took a jeep ride to reach the trekking spot and from there we started to walk.
First thing we noticed was lots and lots of deers. You’d be surprised how calm they react even after a human intervene their privacy in the wild also we did find some dead skulls enroute. The trekking can be rated as moderate difficulty.
We did see Elephants, Bison and listened to the beautiful sounds of the wild birds. Here’s a gallery of the trek which finally led to a small pool of cold water.
#2 Safari in Mudumalai
The next best activity to do in Masinagudi is to go for a safari ride. You can either try safari by car or an Elephant. Next to the Masinagudi there’s a small route where the forest dept will take the tourists in their jeep with binoculars to sight the wild animals. You can also take your own car in this route after 6 P.M
You can also go to the nearby Bandipur national park or Nagarhole national park. You can have a look at the Nagarhole national park ride and booking procedure in the below video. If you’re a fan of national parks then check out the Periyar national park boating online booking procedure in our site.
