"Periyar National Park is famous for Wildlife and boating services. The main attraction are the birds, trees in the dam and a cruise in the lake. The main advantages to visit are; 1. Greenery and wild life 2. scene where tress stand tall high up above the water level 3. calmness and beauty Negatives: 1. Nothing else activities than boating and walking 2. No much animals comes to the bank and they are occasional visitors"

"Great boat ride. Could only see Indian bisons , foxes, birds. Be as silent as possible to not scare the wildlife away (yes I'm pointing at north indians) "
