Periyar National Park

Periyar National ParkPeriyar National Park nestles in the hills of the Western Ghats in Kerala. The place is an enchanting combination of the forests of Periyar tiger reserve and the mountains of Munnar. 200 km from Kochi lie the densely forested wildlife sanctuary at the Periyar Tiger Reserve and the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary.

The Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary at Thekkady is country's major sanctuary and the drive to Thekkady is mesmerising because the road curves through the tranquil countryside, rich plantations and thick jungles and makes the scene unbelievably gorgeous. The wildlife sanctuary is encircled by the Periyar lake which adds to the beauty of the place.

The animals seen in the sanctuary are elephants, Gaur, Wild Pigs, Sambar, Barking Deer, Mouse Deer, Dole or Indian Wild Dog and very rarely, a Tiger. The rare lion-tailed macaque, the Nilgiri Langur, Common Langur and Bonnet Macaque are also seen. The sanctuary is the home of the elusive Nilgiri Tahr which is nearing extinction and is rarely seen. The best season to visit Periyar wildlife sanctuary is from the months of October and June.
