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!

"Gods Own Country :D"
reviewed on Jun 23 2014
Outlined out on God's Own Country, Kerala, is this venture Tiger nature hold - Periyar, provincially called Thekkady. Periyar or the Big River, gets its name from the long lake that waters the soggy deciduous slopes giving an enduring wellspring of survival for the nearby natural life. An antiquated legend goes that when a powerful tusker got slaughtered at the hands of a Britisher, the past lord of Travancore was saddened to the point that he instantly stretched out insurance to the inhabitants of the woodland. In 1982, the center territory was pronounced a National Park and as of late, in 2004, protection deliberations were further solidified with the framing of the Periyar Foundation - a joint campaign of the recreation center organization and the locals. Throughout the dry periods, by and large in March and April, gathering of wild elephants skip in the waters of the Periyar Lake. Furthermore in the event that you all of a sudden discover the air resound with the rowdy call of the langur and the peafowl, signs are that a Big Cat is some place close-by and a calm hold up will be advantageous.
