Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary is situated around 50 kms from the famous Hill-station Munnar, Kerala, India. This is the best place in Kerala to see the wild animals at the time of travelling to this route. The route is very narrow, take utmost care while travelling to this way. Beware of wild Elephants, you can see Elephants any time in this... More

If you like exhilarating views and wild goats this is for you. Access is by bus - there will probably be long queues at the car park - and then on foot. Not a wide variety of natural history, but the baby goats are cute. It does feel as though you're on top of the world.

Beware, the treetop houses here are rustic! It looks lovely in the pictures but in reality was two mattresses on the ground in a tiny hut with pillow and mattress covered by a sheet (one with holes in it) and two blankets again one with holes in and used by who knows how many people. We're not fussy travellers and... More

We had read that the best chance of viewing wildlife was early morning so we left the Munnar area at 5:30am so as to be at the park by 7:30am, thinking they would start the trek right away. Well we had to wait until about 9:15am before the guide was ready. When we saw evidence that elephants were there earlier... More

There are two options that you could avail. The 4-5 km short trek or the 8-9 km long trek. We did not have much time and we started off with the short trek. They will send 2-3 guides with you. We had a hope that we would see atleast one wild animal. But to our disappointment, we could not spot... More
