Periyar Tiger Reserve

Periyar Tiger Reserve

Periyar Tiger Reserve Tour by Ocean6 Holidays

Periyar Tiger Reserve is located in the southeastern part of the southwestern Indian state of Kerala. Guarded by the Cardamom and Pandalam hills of the South Western Ghats along the border with Tamil Nadu, another southern Indian state, it is an example of nature’s bounty with great scenic charm, rich bio diversity and providing veritable visitor satisfaction. The Mullaperiyar Dam on Periyar River is the center of attraction of the park. Boat rides on the dam waters are the only means for viewing wildlife at Periyar. Wild animals often come down to the dam waters specially during the summer months providing good chances of sightings. A healthy population of wild elephants, bisons, deers abounds in Periyar. Tigers and leopards have also been conserved successfully in Periyar although sightings are very rare due the hilly terrain & thick foliage.

Ocean6 Holidays has got it’s own team and base in Kochi, to facilitate all it’s upcoming Periyar tours. All our guests will be provided with a contact person present in Kochi representing Ocean6 Holidays during their complete Periyar trip.
