"Silent Valley National Park ( സൈലന്‍റ് വാലീ നാഷണല്‍ പാര്‍ക്ക്), is a national park with a core zone of 236.74 square kilometres (91 sq mi) (making it the largest national park in Kerala). It is located in the Nilgiri Hills, within the Palakkad District of Kerala, South India. This region was explored in 1847 by the botanist Robert Wight, and is a setting for the epic Mahabharatha.

"Enjoy silence nature and beauty. Don't go thinking about spotting animals! Enjoy unspoilt indian's only rain forest experience! Kerala is God's own country! We spotted many varieties of butterflies, Malabar squirrel, lion tailed monkey, langoor monkey! Watch tower view is just awesome! Do the trek as well. No food available, so please pack good amount of food. Drive from Palakkad takes good 3 hours. Jeep ride is chilling a bit rain adds to it! Carry salt to work around leeches! One step closer to nature. Drivers are very friendly. Can reserve the jeep rides in advance thru phone! "
