With their huge flexible bodies and good camouflage, tigers are the ultimate predators in the world. Its humongous look can make any one on the earth awestruck.

Pride of our Nation:

Undoubtedly the master of predators has all credits to be the pride of our country. Being the national animal of our India, it surely deserves all respect to be saved priory. When looking from surveys , from past 40,000 in last century it has great fall unfortunately at present.

Nagarjunsagar Srisailam Tiger Reserve of Telangana is World’s Largest Tiger Reserve:

Munnanur Forest Area of Telangana State is also a bliss for Wild Life Photographers.

Nagarjunsagar Srisailam Tiger Reserve of Telangana State is the world’s largest tiger reserve and a very important tourist destination of Telangana State for its thick forest area and a home to various wild species. On a lighter note nobody who visits this place cannot escape from the eyes of wild cat of the world.

History says that famous Buddhist monk and scholar Nagarjuna lived here with his disciples and established Buddhist university, which is relocated on the banks of Nagarjunsagar reservoir.

It consists of a core area of 3568 Sq.Km, a buffer area of 1175 Sq.Km and 1194 Sq.Km of Gundla Brahmeswaram Wildlife Sanctuary (also the parts of Nandyal and Giddalur Divisions) as an prolonged core. Nagarjunasagar-Srisailam Tiger Reserve is so big that it cannot be covered at one go.

Located in the Nallamala forest region – an offshoot of Southern Eastern Ghats of Telangana , Nagarjunasagar-Srisailam tiger reserve is curled among floral and faunal species. River Krishna rising in Sahyadri Hills and flows through the states of Maharastra and Karnataka rushes its way across Nallamala hills over 130 Kms.

Munnanur is a major village and also a checkpost which comes at the beginning of Nallamala Forest. During weekdays the number of vehicles which cross thi checkpost is close to 1200 but the number doubles on weekends due to more number of tourists visiting the forest and other places.
