The camp very easlily
accesible and is located at Kyathadevara Gudi (K.Gudi) within B.R Hills
Sanctuary limits.It is just 86 km from Mysore (via Nanjangud and
Chamrajnagar) and 225 km from Bangalore (via Mysore and Chamrajnagar).
K.Gudi Camp is also close to Coimbatore in Tamilnadu, just 175 km away
(via Sathyamangalam and Chamarajnagar).
Accommodation at K.Gudi
Wilderness Camp is clean, comfortable, homely, non-ostentatious and
merges with the surrounding environment. The C
amp has eight twin bedded tented cottages, three log huts and four
well-furnished rooms at the Maharaja’s Hunting Lodge. K.Gudi can easily
accommodate 35 to 40 guests at a time and also provides an ideal setting
for hosting meetings and conferences.
The K.Gudi Camp is located
inside the Biligiri Ranganna Temple Wildlife Sanctuary and thus becomes
the base for the various wildlife expeditions into the Park. Jeep rides,
with trained naturalists to interpret the sightings, are the major
attraction of the camp. We take guests twice into the forest everyday,
once at dawn and once just before dusk.
Trekking inside the Sanctuary is another exciting activity that the camp
offers its guests. There are many well-marked trails leading out of the
camp, which offer various degrees of physical challenge. Trekking offers
a plethora of wildlife viewing opportunities and bird watchers would be
delighted at the number of birds one can sight in these trails.
Evenings are for unwinding after a “hard day’s work”. Sit around a
campfire or watch a wildlife movie at the audio-visual room.
Drinks and snacks can be served from our well-stocked bar.
We offer much more if you stay on …
Though you may find even one night's stay enjoyable, we recommend that
you stay for several days. We can show you much more. Watch the nimble
hands of the workers at the coffee estate, view a panoramic sunset from
a mountain top, visit the Biligiri Ranganathaswamy Temple, and discover
the kingdom of butterflies and insects. Carry on with your safari and
