Periyar National Park

Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary


A trip to the Periyar National Park also includes a boat ride around the lake. It is the primary route to explore the sanctuary. Besides, this way of touring the sanctuary also saves the animals from being disturbed by the sightseers. You might come across various animals such as boar, deer, and birds. The boat ride is actually more of a sail than a wild-life exploring experience.


The forest department regulates the boat rides. You will need to purchase a ticket in order to treat yourself with a boat ride. In order to not miss out on your boat trip during peak seasons, ensure that you reach the ticket office about an hour and a half before the trip to purchase the tickets.


Additional Tip: In order to have the most pleasurable boat ride and wildlife spotting experience, go for the first or the last departure. The best time to go for animal sightseeing in this park is between the months of October and March.
