Well to begin with, the place does promise you that wildlife can literally be spotted in its backyard! However, We could not enjoy the wilderness and the denizens of the jungle due to forest department restrictions for a jungle safari. However during our two nights and three days stay , we sure did have some memorable moments. The first night... More

If you to stay in a resort within the sanctuary, this is one of two options, both run by the government. The place is old. But they keep it clean. And it is being renovated. Plus it has basic but comfortable rooms. Bathroom was also nice with high quality lemongrass soaps and herbal shampoo. The staff are sincere and courteous.... More

I was at the Periyar house on 1 May with my family (wife and toddler daughter). The only good thing that I can say about the place is that it is an awesome "place to be with family and be out in front of the building post 6:pm and take walks on the main road in front". The chirping of... More

I stayed on May 23rd and 24th there. The accommodation is inside the forest and great for forest lovers. But travellers who want some fun or shopping with a bit of forest may not find this accommodation very attractive because entry and exit from the forest is time bound and restricted.The ambience is great and you may see birds and...

Stayed here for two nights. The rooms were basic but good enough for the price. The location is fantastic as its within the wildlife reserve itself. Great for those early morning or late night treks through the forest. The food was very good and there were always something that one could eat even if he/she is not fond of local... More

Its an excellent place inside the national forest, food provided is good. Tickets for boat rides are available in KTDC and occupants are given preference, its a 10 min walk to the boat ride. Would highly recommand this place for staying inside the forest.
