Walk on the Wild Side : A Trek to the Periyar Tiger Reserve
May 20 | 6:30PM
Periyar National Park
Your chance to see the real Tiger Woods! Trek through the greenest jungles of the Periyar Tiger Reserve - home to terrific tigers and enormous elephants.
If you are more of a tree hugger than a cat person, the tour guides will fascinate you with knowledge about different types of trees and medicinal plants that can be found in the area. During your trek into the jungle, you would be exploring marsh areas, dense vegetation and giant trees. Brace your social media accounts, you will also have the chance to enjoy panoramic views from the various viewpoints.
Spot rare birds and other animals like lion-tailed macaques, sambar deer, butterflies and a vast variety of insects. A mosaic of habitats will be traversed before the party gets into rafts!
Gently drift on a river, stress free and peaceful while taking in the vivid scenic views of nature that surround you. The sights, the sounds, and the views all come together to give an unforgettable experience.
You would be accompanied by an armed forest guard and 6 guides who would use skinny poles to propel you down a raft through the famous Periyar Lake that covers the most dense part of the forest in Periyar Tiger Reserve.
The rafting goes on for about three hours, during which all tourists enjoy a breathtaking view of forest-clad hills. Animals like elephant, gaur and sambar are sighted close to the edges of the lake. The team hikes back by about 5 pm.
