Masinagudi was an awesome place to visit. Early morning we went for safari. If you have your own vehicle. Do not go for locals its just waste of money. We saw elephants, wild buffalo, wild pig, deer etc. Its actually a tiger reserve but we could not see even a single tiger. At night we were staying in a resort and enjoyed a lot with friends.
It was nice while travelling in the hairpin bends and ghat roads. The weather was very dry at the time of travelling as there was no rain. Otherwise the trip was great and while in jungle safari we were able to spot few elephants and bisons and the silence of the jungle was great.
