Commutating inside Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary: Although jeeps are the most preferred way to commutate inside the sanctuary limits, a trek or a walk through the dense forest beauty is more preferable as it gives you a chance to spot beautiful peafowls, blabbers, cuckoo’s and woodpeckers on the way. Also the jeep safari might give you only a glimpse or two of the extensive fauna as animals tend to get frightened and stay away from the jeeps, due to the sound the motor makes. The luckiest ones are the tourists who get into the first slot of the jeep safari, after which it is a game of luck. If commutating via jeep the best chances of spotting animals, sometimes a tiger or two is early in the morning.
Even though there a number of jeeps that operates at a very good frequency, taking a three hour trek to cover the trek is sure to be more enchanting and exciting. If you are someone are looking out for serenity, fun and adventure then experience and encounter the swampy terrains, chirpy sounds, thick woods, small waterfalls and a tiger or two by taking the way less taken – a trek, instead of cramping yourself in the jeep.
