Nagarhole National Park, one of South India's well-protected wildlife sanctuary, is located in two districts of Kodagu and Mysore in Karnataka. Also known as Rajiv Gandhi National Park, it is a part of the Niligiri Biosphere Reserve, with the neighbouring Bandipur, Mudumalai and Wayanad National Parks forming the rest of the reserve.

It runs across the ranges of the Western Ghats on Brahmagiri Hills, and is located northwest of Bandipur National Park. The two parks are separated by Kabini Reservoir. The name "Nagarhole" comes from two words, i.e, Naga which means snakes and hole (pronounced ho-lay) meaning stream. With streams, valleys and waterfalls, Nagarhole is a beautiful National Park protecting endangered wildlife species, mainly Elephants and Tigers.
