As we think about Kumily and Thekkady, the images and the beautiful scenes of spice and coffee plantations come to our minds. The lush greenery, rippling waterfalls and the scenes of wild animals, birds and reptiles run through our minds. The Periyar tiger Reserve and Wildlife sanctuary is one of the best forest sanctuaries of the country. The sanctuary is spread over the whole Idukki District and is a very popular tourist attraction. The tigers are the main animals found here and is also a part of the Project Tiger. On your visit to Kumily, a visit to this reserve is a must for everyone.
