We went for night safari trek inside the forest, with a guide and an armed guard. It was from 7 - 10pm, through pitch dark forest. Saw many sambar deer, gaurs, wild boars, It was an amazing experience. We walked 6kms during that time.

Periyar tiger is a nice place to be in strictly contact with the nature. You can see, with a bit of luck, many beautiful animals. You have to try!!!!

It should be called a monkey, bird or bison reserve. You might see elephants if you are lucky. But really you have more chance of being run over by a bus than seeing a tiger.. Sorry guys you all need to try harder, alot harder...More
