Bandipur National Park/Bandipur Tiger Reserve is approx. 240kms from Bangalore and can be easily reached under 5 hours. It is where the Deccan Plateau meets the Western Ghats and the altitude of the park ranges from 680 meters (2,230 ft) to 1,454 meters (4,770 ft). As a result, the park has a variety of biomes including dry deciduous forests, moist deciduous forests and shrublands. The wide range of habitats help support a diverse range of organisms. The park is flanked by the Kabini river in the north and the Moyar river in the south. The Nugu river runs through the park. The highest point in the park is on a hill called Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta, where there is a Hindu temple at the summit.

Bandipur has the highest number of tigers in all of south India and stands second at national level and also has the second highest tiger density across the country.

The restaurant is just a place where you can keep staring at the “blue mountain” and the cloud top for hours together. The place also has some outdoor games such as Badminton, bow and arrow and some indoor games as well. You can lay your hands on them to kill that time in afternoon after heavy lunch and a morning Safari (until the evening Safari).
