Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary

The PERIYAR WILD LIFE SANCTUARY at Thekkady is a preserved stretch of dense, evergreen rainforests that strudels the tiny state of Kerala on the southwestern tip of the Indian peninsula. Sandwiched between the mighty Western Ghat mountain ranges and the shimmering Arabian sea, at over 2800feet above MSL,here's an idyllic retreat that offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience the thrill of close encounters with the wildness

Pleasantly cool, with the invigorating chill of unpolluted mountain air, here's a sublime escape from the cloister of concrete! The stimulating aroma of spices, the mating call of a bull-elephant, the unceasing tempo of trilling crickets, the honey-dewed perfection of vivid wild flowers, the noisy frolic of babbling baboons and fairy lights of millions of fireflies lighting up the night. Get mesmerized! Abounding in evergreen flora, trees entwined with pepper vines graciously reaching up towards the sky, a veritable orchestra of birdcalls and animal cries. A wholly back-to-the-basics experience. Offering you an opportunity to refresh rejuvenate, re-discover yourself . Periyar tiger Reserve, Thekkady, is an example of nature's bounty, with great scenic charm, rich bio diversity and providing veritable visitor satisfaction. Sprawled over an area of 777 Sq .km., Periyar is one of the 27 tiger reserves in India
