Went there on a rainy, misty morning to see the wildlife. We did see some deer and wild pigs and such but no tigers. A nice boat ride for about 90 minutes. Park is lovely.

We can see the beauty of nature here. One lake where the animals come for drinking water. One must visit the place early morning to have a glimpse of wild animals. The park opens for public at 5 but ticket for boat can be bought at 6 am. Difficult with young children to stand in queue.

It is a nice and Serene place for a visit. Though it says a tiger reserve, the odd's of spotting a tiger during the boat ride is once a year. I was obviously not lucky enough to spot a tiger. Did get a chance to see other animals though. If you like a laid back experience with no expectation's, you... More

Visited Periyar Sanctuary, there were no walks available so took the boat trip. Boat slowly travels for about 5km up river then heads back. Lots of bird life on the water, and saw some deer and mountain goats from afar, but otherwise a non eventful trip, and the boat gets quite noisy with tourists. Pleasant, but wouldn't go out of...

It was OK. Visit only during on season. Nothing to watch during summers here. On boat, take the window seat else boat ride not worth.

I took a 2 hour boat trip at 7 o'clock in the morning when the sun was rising and it was all calm and peaceful. The quiet water was now and then disturbed by beautiful birds like the Kingfisher with its amazing blue wings. Groups of elephants were strolling over the hills, monkeys were playing on the banks and gaurs... More
