While we decided to spend the rest of our day at the resort relaxing, having good food, chit chatting and sleeping, we were quite sure the very next day would not be the same. And we were right! Just as we thought, our day started quite early at 5 am. An early morning misty ride to the Periyar wildlife sanctuary. Up the hill, down the road and all the way above! The safari jeep took us to the dense forest covered in early morning mist.
The animals could be hiding anywhere, and we were right again! There Mr Fox was staring right at us, followed by Lion-tailed macaque hopping from one tree to the other. We waited patiently for the weather to clear up, drove a little further and stopped over for a cup of tea in a local's house. Continued our journey up again for the most stunning view of the place covered in dense forest.
