2hrs of jeep Journey you can see lot of elephants, deers , Bison's, rabbits etc. Try this trip in weekdays. because chinnar is found in the highway of udumalaipet and Munnar. SO traffic is less in weekdays you have a possibility to see more animals. Note: don't use torch.

You can easily see the Famous Nilgiri Mountain Goats. Though they are shy but sometimes they do the honors to give you a visit.

You can spot deers, lepoard, elephants. We spotted deers, elephants and peacock. 54 km away from Munnar. There is no hotel on the away and also at Chinnar wild life park. Lot of monkeys will trouble you at rest house so be careful of your belongings.

Chinnar located near Munnar is a great place for enjoying and understanding the hidden beauty of rain forest. It's an ideal location for trekking and if you lucky enough you will come across face-to-face moments with real wild animals, which will be a moment for the lifetime.

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.
