About Periyar :

The misty forest highlandss of Periyar Sanctury of wild boar and elephants, 140 species of orchid, a turtle-friendly lake, countless birds and a few predatory tigers. Set aside as reserved forests in 1899, these woods on the edge of Tamil Nadu became the Nellikkampatty Sanctuary in 1934 and were incorporated in project tiger in 1989. Tigers are elusive, but a twilight boat cruise usually turns up herds of wild elephants munching grass or taking a dip in the lake.

Surrounded by spice plantations, kumily, where most tourists stay, is suffered with the sweet smell of cardamom , cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. The town religious fervor makes it a lively contrast to Thekkady, the cluster of hotels within the park; the mosque and temple keep up a steady stream of chanting, singing, and bell-tolling, which is blasted all over town by a network of loudspeekers; don't plan on sleeping late.

How To Reach :

The park is connected by the road from the state capital of Trivandrum (271 km), as well as the cities of Cochin (200 km), Kottayam (117 km), and Madurai (140 km). The nearest major rail junction is Kottayam. The nearest national airports are Cochin (200 km) and Madurai (140 km). Tourist Places in India would provide you A/C and Non A/C cars with chauffeur for your transportation to the Periyar National Park.
 

Orientation :

The cheap hotels are along Thwkkady Road, which runs from the kumily bus station on the border of Tamilnadu to the Thekkady boat jetty(bearing left at the fork and right at Hotel Ambadi). The entrance to the reserve is about 1.5 Km from the bus stand; it's another 3 Km to the boat Jetty. Walking through the park is permitted as long as you stay on the road, but you may not enter the forest without a guide.

Periyar SancturyThe reserve is home to a wide variety of animals, including wild boar, monkeys, the Nilgiri Langur, malabar giant squirrels, barking deer and gaur. most people, however come to Periyar to see its main attractions. wild elephant and rarely spotted tigers. Periyar claims to be home atleast 46 of the world's 3700 remaining wild tigers, but you would have to be very lucky see a tiger.
