Maravakandy dam is a soulful treat to anyone who wishes to get lost in the exquisite beauty of the shallow water that hides its beautiful shades inside the thick jungle that welcomes us with a warm smile and a lot of animals.
The dam is around 15 kms from the center of Masinagudi and is considered to be one of the finest tourist attractions in Masinagudi simply for its unadulterated beauty and charming nature.
Fancy some beautiful montage shots of trees sprung over huge areas only to be decorated by the melodic streams of water flowing by? Then the moyar river is exactly what you are looking for. An iconic tourist place in Masinagudi, Moyar river is a tributary to the Bhavani river.
As said earlier this is what separates Bandipur from Mudumalai tiger reserve so don’t be surprised to spot few animals here and there. Acquired the name Moyar from the Village where the water originates from. This place is an absolute delight to any nature lovers for the pristine look it offers and a strong aura of chilling nature vibes flowing down the river.
6.Theppakadu Elephant camp
Who doesn’t love the tuskers? They are basically big, wild babies throwing tantrums. While if you are on the lookout for an ideal pitstop to catch a good glimpse of the Elephants then head straight to Theppakadu elephant camp, one of the most visited tourist places in Masinagudi.
Nuzzled on the Ooty main road, Theppakadu camp is just under a 10kms drive from the center of Masinagudi.
