This part of sanctuary is well maintained and we saw an Elephant family while traveling to Munnar. The State Highway 17 is one of the best routes in India.

This is a huge reserve consisting of mountains, forests, waterfalls, dams, reservoirs and ofcourse plants trees and animals. Topslip seems to be the focal point and no private vehicles are allowed beyond a certain point. One has to buy tickets and travel in Forest department vehicles. Wild life that we spotted were Sambar deer, Malabar giant squirrel, Peacocks and langurs.... More

It is called top slip located near Pollachi. Nice lush green scenic place. Could not visit wild life sanctuary as forest department vehicles were full and denied us trips. Only few trips are organised as they have limited vehicles

Also called Top Slip the place is located on the western ghats. The famous attractions here are the elephant ride and elephant refreshment camps(on seasons). There is also a forest ranger camp that has a museum showing exhibits of preserved animals. It has rare species, but the place could have been maintained properly.

Things I remember from the trip: 1. A jungle tour in Forest Department's van. They have about 3 vans and will send you in batches of about 25 per van. So if there are too many people, you might have to wait a long time. The vans will travel through the mountain roads and stop at a tribal village. There... More
