Quiet and relaxing Sep 19, 2008
The Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary is very quiet and relaxing, it’s best to go to Thekkady, the main ‘town’ in the area. From there you can book a tour, either at a hotel, or in the main street. There’s not much choice when it comes to tours, you can either do a hike with a guide or take a boat trip.

If you want to see as much animals as possible, the boat trip is the best option, especially if you take the trip in the late afternoon. This is when most animals come to the lake to drink. Don’t expect to see any tigers or elephants, especially the tigers are hidden away from the area’s where visitors come.

we visited Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary in Feb 2011. The weather was beautiful and the scenery was very nice. We took the boat ride around 11.00 AM. It was very intersting to see many different kinds of birds, but on the lake-shore, we saw only wild boar and a few sambhar (deer)
