Reserve Someshwar

Photos and description

India has a large variety of flora and fauna and its beautiful landscapes for hundreds of years attract the attention of people from all over the world. Therefore, the Indian government is trying to preserve this wealth, creating nature reserves, national parks and buffer zones. One such place is the sanctuary Someshwara which is located in the southern part of the country, in the Western Ghats. Though its area is quite small - only a little more than 88 sq. km, which is covered mostly evergreen plants, its species diversity is striking. The reserve is home to a huge number of animals, such as langur, common leopard, wild dog, sambar, Jackal, axis, tiger, and others. Of reptiles there are often there you can find monitor lizard, Python and sacred to the Hindus the king Cobra. Fans of birds in the reserve, too, is something to admire - Someshwar is home to such interesting species like the Malabar trogon and Ceylon Bilonog (Nightjar or legoscia).

Also at the Park is worth a visit a wonderful waterfall and Anacabe the top Agumbe, which offers simply stunning views of the reserve.

On the territory of Someshwar are thirteen villages, whose inhabitants mainly work in factories for the production of cashew nuts and rice mills that are located far from the reserve.

The best period to go to Someshwar from October to April. Although the reserve is quite easily accessible from Bangalore and Mangalore, as the region is very well developed transport network, it is still quite isolated, and it is visited not so many tourists.
