Periyar Travel Guide

Periyar is the best-known wildlife sanctuary in south India. Though billed as a tiger reserve, Periyar is really famous for its wild elephants, 100-year-old artificial lake and its setting in the beautiful thickly forested Western ghats of Kerala.

This is not a wildlife watcher's best shot at spotting the Bengal Tiger considering there are less than 40 of them that inhabit an area of 777sq.km but there’s plenty of other game like the Nilgiri langoor, Nilgiri tahr, bison, deer, antelope and about 700 elephants to make the trip worthwhile.

Periyar National Park is blessed with a variety of flora and fauna which makes it a paradise for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiast. But the playful elephants of this park – 800 in number, will undeniably grab all your attention. It is indeed a paradise of elephants!
