ABOUT Periyar National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary
Extraordinarily wild and yet easily enjoyed from boat, Periyar Tiger Reserve will astound you with its 925 sq. km of hidden glades, wild flowers and sightings of elephants and tigers. Follow in the paw prints of the tiger along the Tiger trail, with remarkable sightings of langurs and elephants along the way, and your trip to Periyar Tiger Reserve promises to be the most adventurous one yet.

Lofty, lush peaks of Cardomom and Pandalam stand as sentinels over the grazing Sambhar and Periyar river nourishes the pristine flora bustling with fluttering butterflies and birds. Periyar Tiger reserve, one of the most significant reserves in India, not only because of its tiger population, is home to diverse reptilian, bird, amphibian, butterfly and mammalian species. If you really want to be one with nature, trail the way with forest guides, through quivering evergreens and pitch your tent in the forest, where Toddy cats and Sambhar stroll. Whether you fall asleep to the whispering winds and wake up to the cacophony of bird songs or go for nature walks and solitary encounters with the heart of the reserve, Periyar Tiger Reserve will provide a true forest experience.

There are several eco-tourism programmes in the Tiger Reserve, which include day and night trekking, camping and bamboo rafting. These present exciting opportunities to spot animals and birds. Contact the Eco-tourism Centre (Tel: +91-4869-224572) at Ambady Junction, Kumily, for signing up. If, in a sanctuary, sighting animals is a matter of chance, seeing a tiger is a rarity, especially in this lush land. You may have better luck spotting a leopard or gaur, sambar and cheetal. The gaur, a majestic animal with huge horns, is seen at its largest in the Western Ghats — it can weigh up to a ton!

A great place for the Holiday. It's completely adventure experience in the Periyar National park. We waited for an hour and then the forest department arranged the tents and they helped us a lot. After that, Jungle safari, trekking and boating. We saw many wild animals and the nature was beautiful in the park. It's a perfect place to spend the time for thrilling experience.
