More Information: People often ask how I travel too much and how I get to know about various offbeat destination across the country. It’s simple, when you keep yourself close to mother nature, you will find real you. And that vibes will take you more close to the nature. You will get idea about places you never gone before, and after going, you will get what you deserve.

Today I will take you to the another Black buck reserve in India. It is in Karnataka. You you get me right. It is Jayamangali Blackbuck reserve.

Well the day started with rain clouds. But as the time pass by it stated getting golden and magical. I was amazed to see grey clouds around the golden sun. Also noticed blue sky playing hide and sick behind the clouds. You will cross few amazing hills while taking the journey. More you come closer to the area, more you resemblance it will foreign countries. It gave me immense energy and peace.

After crossing more than 90 kms of beautiful road, we finally enter to the area of Blackbucks. I didn’t have idea of count but as the time passed by I came across herd of dear now and then. And I realised people won’t return empty handed from this reserve once they come here. Whenever I see Blackbucks I melt down by their activity and colour contrast specially the male one.

Talking about the landscape, well I can’t explain you how beautiful it is because until you go there you won’t be able to visualise the beauty of nature. I bet you will feel like you have come to an isolated island where you barely find people but animals and birds. You will also find this place is 360 degree surrounded by rocky hills. Breezes are always there to accompany you. Everywhere is it green which you can smell all around and birds tweeter in every branch of tree. Sometimes you will see a single Blackbuck stands far, looking at you blank, and then walk back considering you as an alien.

And for birds watcher I must tell, dude this area is the diamonds come from coal. If you give time you must see Rock bush quail, Rain quail, Grey Francolin, White eyed buzzard, Short toed snake eagle, Indian Courser, Sirker Malkoha and many more exclusive species. And most importantly you will get to find Indian Hare just you need to know their habitat. I was lucky enough to watch it twice.

I will strongly suggest don’t try for local transport to reach to this place. Because even if you get KSRTC buses from Bengaluru which will drop you at Madhugiri taking more than 3 hours. From there you will find nothing which will take you to the destination which is another 20 km from Madhugiri. And even if you reach out to your destination, you can’t explore the area by foot. So it’s better to pack your bag by private car.


It strongly suggested that you should carry food and good amount of water with you for the entire day. And it is also recommended you should spend the whole day in that grassland. On the way you may get some food and fruit shops but we should not rely on that because those shops may not be opened regularly.
