A number of good locations for spotting wildlife exist in and around Mudumalai. The bridge on the main road near Pykara Lake is a great spot to seek out different kinds of birds and animals. The Kallatty Falls and Moyar River see a number of animals paying a visit to quench their thirst, so this is another good location for avid animal watchers.
The Boat ride and Jungle safari, offered by the Tamil Nadu Tourism & Development Corporation and Forest Department present another chance to view the most exotic of flora and fauna in the area.
If one is going from Ooty to the Mudumalai Sanctuary, there are thirty six hairpin bends on the way through forested hills and waterfalls. This road contains a plethora of locations to spot animals and birds in their natural habitat.
