It was a very short trip of one day amidst nature. Was lucky to get an accommodation without prior booking may be because it was middle of the week but recommended to do a prior booking if the intention is to spend the night there and which is a must. If one loves nature and wants to spend some quite... More

I have done many almost 15 trips to this park, taking my friends and relatives on various seasons. From entry at the foot hills, one will see lush green forest ( especially after rains) till Top Slip. After that one will see only planted forest in the tourist zone, which is quite disappointing. The park runs regular noisy bus trips... More

The drive from the gate up to topslip has amazing scenery and views, saw some wildlife too. Paid R800 for 3 people to do the elephant safari ride, saw Bison lots of monkeys and birds but it was very short maybe 10-15 mins. We wanted to go through Kerela park but they only do a bus tour organised at reception... More

After check-in on a rainy evening we got into the Pollachi-Parambikulam Govt. bus and traveled to Parambikulam. The bus was almost full but the ride was worth it. We saw herds and herds of Indian Bisons, monkeys, wild boars and deer. The scenery was ultimate paradise on the whole with running water on the roads, dams and green, greener and... More

The topslip is part of Tamilnadu and can be reached via pollachi. The jungle safari organised by the forest department is the only possibility to enter the reserve forest. Wild boars just roam around like chicken on a farm land, if you are lucky you can spot heards of elephants and deer. A few kilometers from Topslip is the Kerala... More
