A few days back I was travelling from Mysore to Ooty for the first time in life. I was pleasantly surprised when I was informed that we shall be passing through Bandipore tiger reserve.
I was fortunate enough to see a herd of wild elephants. My driver was afraid and said not use flash or make too much noise.
I was also informed that the highway running through reserve forest is closed at night from 9 PM to 6 AM in the morning.
