Bababudangiri State Forest - the evergreen tiger country of Bhadra
Although Bhadra Tiger Reserve consists of a big area, it is in fact divided into three parts, disconnected physically from each other. While the Aldera state forest is divided from the main body by the huge Bhadra reservoir, private coffee estates cut off the Bababudangiri (BB Giri) state forest from the forests of Muthodi Range and Jagara valley.
Also, the BB Giri state forest chiefly consists of Montane Temperate Wet forests (Sholas) and grasslands. Come monsoons and few places can rival the scenic beauty of Shola-Graslands.
The following images were taken during one such visit during the monsoons, in early June 2008. We drove from Kemmanagundi to Attigundi and back. The weather ranging from overcast to torrential downpours.
