One hour by boat is very calm, serene, and peaceful. It was not raining that day almost 11 am when I started. I was able to enjoy all the green shades in the park. Also I saw deers, a buffalo, and some colorful birds. The boat tour is one hour. It is better to enjoy this tour if it is... More

The place is best for its scenic beauty. Good place to roam with friends and family. Book your boat tickets online, or you may face a long queue. In summer time, you can see wild animals which will come to drink water.

Kerala is a beautiful state and its sad to see the devastation the lack of proper waste disposal and plastics have on nature in the state. However, at the reserve there is nothing but peace, calm and the beautiful nature that surrounds you. A great example of truly what can be done, if sufficient resource is poured into upkeep of...

Considering a team of 5 locals including a guard accompany the touring party , the price may be justified. Those guys tell some stories about a... More

Few would venture out in late June to enjoy this place. The place is almost free from crowds and the mornings pleasant, overcast with no showers. The boat ride is a pleasure: you woud spot a few monkeys,bison, nilgii and a possible elephant but all animal wild life is bonus and the real thing to enjoy is the nature at... More
