The forest department takes us inside the jungle on a safari where lots of deer, elephant, squirrel can be spotted. The highlight is however the activities arranged there.

It is really a good place to visit. Though it is Tiger reserved forest we can only see Deer, Bison. peacock, squrill, elephant. There were many events which keeps you engaged for the day.

We visited Parambikulam wild life sanctuary in June 2015. Our experience was awesome. We spotted bisons, Spotted deers, Sambar, Wild boars, peacocks, elephants during our forest ride. Drive into sanctuary gives us the feel about how rich the nature is. If you are going on weekends expect longer queues at Sanctuary entrance. I would suggest starting earlier as forest rides...

We planned to go on wildlife photography trip in hope of getting deep into the forest with help of known people. But we could not. Salute to the forest dept for saving nature and wildlife by not bending rules for more money. We stayed in a tree top and it was our first time experience. Wow it was amazing. Food... More

Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary is now known as Parambikulam Tiger Reserve. It is located in the Palakkad District of Kerala, but if you want to visit, you have to travel through Tamil Nadu state and then re enter Kerala.

Great location, amazing food. loved the safari ride. Saw lots of samba deer, Gaur and some birds. The bamboo raft ride in the lake was amazing. saw some crocodiles on the banks. The staff... More
