Top Wildlife Destinations in Kerala

From the spectacular green valleys to the splendid backwaters, Kerala boasts of a varied and vivid topography that is not enjoyed by other states in India. Here are some of the best wildlife destinations in this state:

  • Periyar National Park - This nature park is known for allowing visitors to embark on a trip to a tiger reserve. Situated in the Western Ghats, this area is adorned with lush greens, with the best wildlife spots accessible throughout the year. Aside from tigers, there is also the chance that you will see elephants, reptiles, deer, macaques and various species of birds, including the Malabar hornbill and kingfishers. Through a boat cruise in the picturesque Lake Periyar, you will have an even better experience in this idyllic land.
  • Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary - This wildlife sanctuary is presently under the attention of UNESCO for its potential of becoming a World Heritage Site. Located in the Palakkad District, this place enthralls tourists with various interesting features, including rich flora and fauna, diverse wildlife and native tribes that make the sanctuary their home. The wildlife here includes 39 species of mammals, 61 species of reptiles, 268 varieties of birds, 16 species of amphibians and 124 types of butterflies, which you can spot on top towers that are purposely built for watching them.
  • Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary - This enchanting place is situated on the bank of the Vembanad Lake in the Keralan backwaters and is home to the biggest migratory birds in the country. Here, you can spot herons, larks, owls, cuckoos, flycatchers and Siberian cranes.
  • Eravikulam National Park - This nature park located in Idukki District has a beautiful grassland ecosystem with meandering rivulets. It is generally known for being the home of the Nilgiri Tahr, which is an endangered species of goat. If you are lucky, you will see this animal drinking calmly from the stream that runs across the region. This place is closed from January to April as it is calving season of these goats.
  • Silent Valley National Park - This wildlife reserve located in the Nilgiri Hills in Palakkad is considered as one of the most well-preserved habitats for tigers. It is a very vibrant rainforest area that provides natural habitat to a wide variety of unique flora and fauna.
