It was amazing experience. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to see Tiger but I could see Wild elephants, Bison, Spotted Deer and peacock. I didn't stay overnight but later I thought it's worth staying in Parambikulam. There are few activities which you can do only if you are staying there. (That's what I heard from people who were with... More

Often the... More

Renting a tented niche is probably the most comfortable stay. The staff makes some real good food, I have to say and are very professional. We didn't spot any... More

We were a group that varied from 3 to 73. All age groups thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Very professionally organized and SUPER helpful staff. Mosquitos were not a problem at Honeycomb and did not need to use the AC though we booked a room with one. The ranger (Rajesh) was great and very helpful. He tailored our experience to accommodate...

Parambikulam is a part of Westernghats where pristine forest is in plenty. Located in the muthalamada village of Palakkad Dt ( kerala ) Its a place you don't want to be missed if you are in and around Kerala.
