The forests of the Muthanga wildlife sanctuary are witnesses of Pazhaasi Raja's rebellion against British rule as he took refuge here and continued his guerrilla attacks along with the help of local tribes, which even today reside in the nearby areas.

These forests in Muthanga were

declared sanctuary in 1973 and

were brought under the

project-Elephant in 1992,

and the effect is that, you can

easily spot herds of Elephants

roaming around here and there

in Jungle-their natural habitat.

Wayanad wildlife sanctuary is

home to some 900 wild elephants.

It is a rain forest reserve and shares boundary with 
Bandipur national park of Karnatka and Mudumalai sanctuary of Tamilnadu.

The sanctuary is also famous for its 

watchtower, which is located above

alake on a tree. This lake is also the

main source of water for the wild

animals inhabiting the sanctuary.

Forest officials use this watch tower

to keep a track of various animals.

Wayanad wildlife sanctuary is a major site for eco tourism and the district tourism department is continuously working in this direction. A visit to these ecotourism centers gives its visitors an unforgettable wilderness experience, nature education etc.

To promote the Eco tourism, the

Forest departmentprovides Jeep

safari in Muthanga wildlife

sanctuary which is long

enough to enjoy and treasure

each and every moment spent

inside this wonderful wild and

dense forest.
