Some of the reviews say this is a must for wildlife lovers, I would say the opposite. Though the scenery is beautiful and the boat trip is pleasant enough, the lion park is underwhelming and far from being majestic beasts the lions look like an advertisement for banning enclosures of this kind. They look unhappy, slovenly and bedraggled and it... More

The environment in Neyyar Dam is very beautiful; go enjoy that and skip the Wildlife Sanctuary! We had to wait 2 hours before there was a boat ready to take us to the Sanctuary. Finally, when we got there, we got in a van and drove into the park. After 50 meters we stood still as there were 3 lions.... More

I never imagined such a beautiful and neatly maintained place just an hours drive from Trivandrum. You have the opportunity to visit the upstream and downstream side of the Neyyar dam. There two spots for boating. The best among these two spots is the one where Kerala Tourism have a package trip of Rs.250 per adult (half for kids). This... More
