Had a trekking in Chinnar wildlife sanctuary. It was a good experience.We were a group of 8 and had 2 guides with us. Place is awesome & the hospitality was good. Nearby places to visit are Kanthalloor & Anamudi.

the moment one steps inside the premises one is transported into a world beyond what we know of. it is simply stepping into the laps of nature and feel oneness with environment as a whole.

To spend one night inside the jungle, it was really thrilling. U hear the dears and all other wild animals making sounds the whole night. Sleeping in that atmosphere is really an experience for a life time.

We went here in the month of April before the rains had arrived in Kerala. We trekked in the forest for less than two hours (between 1.30pm and 3 pm) with a resourceful guide and got a feel of what means to be in a parched forest. There were different hues of browns all around! The leaves had all shrivelled.... More

My girlfriend and I went there in August 2012 and we had the chance of being a small number (3) with a guide who knew the forest and who seemed to decode everything around him. This man was amazing! It's right that it's difficult to see elephants (It can be dangerous!) but we saw buffaloes rushing away through bushes and... More

After reading the awful reviews about Chinnar, we had decided to give it a miss, until our trekking guide in Munnar, Jergen, persuaded us to give it a try as he thought we'd like it. When we'd finished the trek, he took us to the Forest Dept office in Munnar, which we would never have found by ourselves as it... More

chinnar is almost 2 hours drive from munnar, we went of morning drive hoping to meet some wild animals, but were unlucky to spot any apart from monkeys. The trekk inside the sanctuary and the watch tower was just good.
