Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary - Thekkady

Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary - Thekkady

Located at the artificial lake of Periyar, the sanctuary is a testimonial to the wonders that the nature can offer to man. The Western Ghats lay majestically here, blanketed in greenery of the deciduous and dense forests of the region. Herds of elephants, leopards, sambars and tigers roam freely under this green canopy making the place a perfect retreat for the animals to freely graze as they please. In order to add a little tint of adventure to your holidays in Kerala, you can go boating in the Periyar Lake and plan a trek to the ruins of the Mangaladevi temple at the heart of the Thekkady forest.
