Good place for bird and animals lovers.It is just 5 minutes from Masinagudi town. Forest safari rides are available but they cost you around Rs 2500.As a part of safari ride, they will stop at this place. Instead, you can take your own vehicles. You can spot the Maravakandy bird in this spot. If you are lucky you can also spot the animals such as deer, elephants, tiger etc.., the Best time to visit is early morning or late evening.

Maravakandy Dam is just 5 minutes away from Masinagudi Town Center. There is animal and bird watching tower, which is an excellent one and it is the best place for nature lovers and bird watcher.The view from this place is just breathtaking.The trek to this place is nice and you can spot wildlife animals if you are lucky.It is recommended to take your own vehicles because the cost of the private jeep to this place is more.It is also recommended to have a local person during the visit.
