We did the 7:30 am walking safari, the guide was great and we saw deer and bison, but as this is dense jungle, sighting wildlife is difficult, but its worth the effort,

We had a boat ride through the periyar river which runs through the wildlife sanctuary. We got a distant view of the elephants and bison from the boat. All in all it was a good experience.

Its a great place for those who are nature lovers and who are in wildlife photography. We actually sight some beautiful animals on our visit. You can opt for trekking, bamboo rafting, boating etc.

Visited this place but its total waste of time and money! Everything from vechicle parking fees to entry fees to boat ride fees is total waste. There is nothing to see and the authorities are only looting the tourists with exorbitant fees.
