We visited mudumalai in the morning around 8 am and took a safari trip. Ticket price is ok and Its amazingly well organised with trustworthy, competent and well informed staff.Keep your mobile on silent to enjoy the nature.Drive to the place was good via masinagudi road.

Mudumalai national park is another half of the national park shared as Bandipur national park. One can see elephants and other wild animals on the roadside while travelling from Mysore to Ooty. Also, there is elephant park where you can see elephants.

It is a total waste. We went for safari ride by paying more amount but we saw only deer and elephants nothing else. No road inside while going. Waste of going from Ooty and waste of time.

The trip to Mudumalai was fantastic and the animals were plentiful and easy to find. We spotted deer, sambar deer, buffaloes, elephants and monkeys. Tigers and leopards were not around, but there were many elephants.

Mudumalai National Park is some 50 km from Ooty. Safari Ride is the main attraction.You can spot Deer, Peacock and Elephant often throughout the road.But you can also spot Tiger and Bison if you are lucky.This is the best place for nature lovers and wildlife photographers.

It's a must place to visit, you can spot the animals such as monkeys, Deer, Peacock, Elephant, Hares etc.., Safari rides are available in Mudumalai. Safari timings are from morning 7 am to 9 am and then in evening 3 pm to 6 pm.The government operates a van safari for 45 minutes it would cost you 135 / head.There are also many private jeeps, they charge you around 750 -1000 / trip for 1 hour.
