Wild Tigers in India

Ty Widhalm
University of Hyderabad, India

My name is Ty Widhalm and I am a philosophy major at UH Hilo. I studied abroad at the University of Hyderabad in India. I had so many incredible experiences studying and traveling in India. It's difficult to choose a single memorable event but, if I am pressed, it would have to be encountering a wild tiger on safari in Kanha National Park. Just getting to the park was an adventure! It took 24 hours of buses, private taxis and auto rickshaws to get there! Once I finally arrived, I learned that in order to enter the park, because of high demand and a low number daily permits, I had wait in line at 4 am at the entrance just to be allowed in.
