Gudavi Bird Sanctuary is one of the five most famous bird
sanctuaries in all of Karnataka, and is located a mere 15KM away from Sorab
town. This sanctuary is home to roughly 217 different species of birds
belonging to 48 families. It is the
perfect habitat for birds to live and mate due to the surrounding natural lake
and trees that provide the birds with shelter. Put on a nice pair of hiking
boots for some light trekking throughout the sanctuary, or get out your camera
and take pictures from the recently built platform. If you are a bird
enthusiast, this destination is simply unparalleled.
