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.

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
