Periyar National ParkPeriyar National Park is located at the Tamil Nadu-Kerala border in India. This Tiger Reserve lies 155 km from Madurai and is host to many animals and birds.

Amidst the high ranges of Western Ghats and Savannah grasslands, the sanctuary is situated on the bank of Lake Periyar, which is surely a nature's delight. Periyar Lake was constructed by the British in 1895 and now holds great importance for both the wildlife of the park as well its visitors.

Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary is the abode of animals like Sambars, Tigers, Gaurs, Lion Tailed Macaques, Nilgiri Langurs, etc and was declared a Tiger Reserve in 1978. The park is famous for its herd of Wild Elephants, which come, to the lake for water. Periyar Lake holds population of Travancore Tortoise and Black Turtle. The park provides the closest possible encounters with the wild animals, via boating in the Periyar Lake. It is the only sanctuary in the country to do so. Tourists can also enjoy activities like elephant rides and trekking.
