Periyar National park, Kerala
Thekkady or Periyar Tiger Reserve? Are they all same and what do they entail? A Tiger reserve? Then why not a Tiger Safari, just like other Tiger Reserves? Why only a boating in a lake? Can we go for trekking also here? What all are the safari options available here?
So many questions were buzzing in my mind, when we were planning to visit Thekkady (Periyar) and to our sheer disappointment, none of the search reads could solve the curiosity.
So, FOTW shall try to share with you an exhaustive post of Periyar tiger Reserve and what all adventure activities one can do there.
