Aralam Wildlife sanctuary Reviews & Map

Raghhav, Rating 3.5/5
I visited this sanctuary in 2013. If you are looking for greenery and peace than this place is for you. Falls, bridges, animals, birds all in a single place. This is the best place for camping, so it will be great fun if you visit here with your friends. I used to visit national parks often but Aralam Wildlife sanctuary is outstanding among them. The wildlife is quite similar to the periyar national park.
