as with most of the wildlife sanctuaries in india, periyar also doesnt have much too talk about...been to this place in July 2012...blessed to watch wild elephant at close call...since this time is monsoon time, it was all green & green...However its not something which is to die for...
Pros- One of the best maintained wildlife sanctuary, Maintained by Kerala govt, everthing right from booking, waiting area, Boats are quite neat & clean.
1.since i went to in the monsoon , thr was not much crowd...during season i heard that you have to stand at least 3 hours to get the boat ticket, which in my opinion is not worth waiting for.
2. during season, their are many boats which are plying in the periyar river, due to the noise created , u will hardly have a chance to see any wild animals except may be wild boaror sambhar
Periyar is to be visited only by nature lover or nature photographers ......Cheers!!!!
