Parambikulam Tiger Reserve Reviews
I have visited this sanctuary in March last year; it is located in Palakkad district of Kerala, staying there for 3 days was a wonderful experience for me. Safari riding and elephant riding was a memorable experience. I have not seen any tiger on this trip but spotted peacock, bison and crocodiles and elephants too. Beautiful nature will allure you and you can also take Parambikulamforest stay and jungle camping to take it to the next level.

If you are planning to visit this sanctuary then I suggest you to accommodation or resort booking in advance otherwise, you can face problems. Last year we have planned but face such issue. Wildlife is fine, beautiful nature site is best for holidays to feel nature. Parambikulam Tiger Reserve is also a reason you want to visit.
