Singara – Masinagudi :It comprises of forests on either side of a road connecting these two villages. The corridor is intensively used by elephants, which seasonally move from the Mudhumalai Tiger Reserve to the Nilgiri North Division.Â Further north between Singara and Masinagudi Villages, elephants move in an east-west direction through a private forest belonging to Singara (coffee) estate.
It was a dream come true for Arun Prasad Reddy in 2011, whenÂ he had an opportunity to visit a resort at singara. Arun Prasad Reddy is now working as a manager at whistlingwoods Resorts.
He started living in the wild and continued his passion for wildlife photography, trekking, safari and night camping.
When you go on safari you can find so many different wildlife. I try to be ready for â€œexpect the unexpectedâ€. â€œOne can never be a hero in the jungle. The only way to get close to the wildlife is to replace FEARÂ with love.â€ , says the ace photographer.
The most deadliest animals on the planet. Very dangerous and powerful.
If you faced the bear this doesnâ€™t necessarily mean that itâ€™ll attack you. But if you see the bear running to you and thereâ€™s no place to hide, donâ€™t turn away to run and donâ€™t show youâ€™re scared.
A little about Whistling woods ESTATES:
The name itself identifies that Whistling wood estate is not a hotel or a resort. Its more like a home stay in the wilderness serenity. They are situated in the valley where in you can have a spectacular view of the Nilgiri mountains on one side & the other side you can see the Mudhumalai tiger reserve sanctuary.
And this place is basically an eye treat for nature lovers. This estate is spread across 17 acres where in you can experience a breath taking view of nature.
