Periyar Thekkady

Thekkady Tour PackagesPeriyar. The earliest sanctuary to be set up in 1934, it extends to 800 square kms & forms part of the high mountain ranges, in the Western Ghats on the Tamil Nadu border where one can expect to see elephants, bison, antelopes, sambar and wild boar. The big cats, tigers and leopards are most elusive and an occasional glimpse can be had in the dry months, when they emerge from the interiors for water. Exotic waterbirds as well as hornbills, blue-winged parakeets, whistling thrush and fly-catchers are also found near the lake. There are plenty of observation towers set up around the reserve to view wild life. A trip on the launch down the river is the best way to observe the bird and animal life of the Sanctuary.

Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary is the pride of Kerala. This natures splendour with a spread of almost 800 sq km is situated on banks of Periyar Lake an artificial lake at Thekkady. It is one of the declared Tiger Reserves in India. The 360 sq km of high ranges of the Western Ghats are clothed in dense evergreen, moist deciduous forests with savannah grass lands. Below this thick green canopy roam herds of elephants, tigers, sambars, Nilgiri langurs, and lion tailed macaques.

The greatest attractions of Periyar are the herds of wild elephants that come down to play in the lake. The world's most fascinating natural wildlife reserves, this is the only sanctuary in India where you can closely watch the wildlife from the safety of a boat cruise on the lake. 

Besides elephant rides, other attractions are Mullaperiyar Dam across Periyar River and treks to the ruins of once most beautiful Mangala Devi temple.
