Flora in Bandipur National Park

The Bandipur National Park is endowed with a moderate climate and diverse geographical features, supporting a wide variety of flora and fauna. The flora in the Bandipur National Park represents a wide variety, consisting of dry deciduous, evergreen forests, the scrub jungles and open grassy woodlands.

The eastern part of the Bandipur National Park is full of scrub jungles, consisting of stunted trees, bushes and grassy patches. As we move towards the northwestern fringes of the park, we notice a gradual shift in the vegetation from open dry deciduous forests to tropical mixed deciduous forests. With the onset of monsoons, the whole area becomes lively and lush green. The meadows bloom with sprouting grass, attracting large herds of Elephants and Gaurs. The floral diversity of the Bandipur National Park supports an equally enormous diversity of wildlife.
