Want to get a feel of forest, then u should visit Parambikulam. Get your accommodation booked through the govt website. There is a small island which has a tree house. Do stay there and enjoy the Bamboo raft ride. The care takers cook excellent food. U need to buy the groceries. Enjoy the sightings of animals and peacocks.

The sanctuary is an ideal place for trekking, but take necessary precautions as wild animals (elephant & tiger) can be spotted anytime.
