Animal Sightings is pretty sure if you are about to travel in the Early morning hours. It would be really adventurous if you could make it alone. An awesome treat from the nature. No Plastic Save nature

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.

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!
