The most popular activity in Periyar is the Periyar lake boat safari. They have 4 boat safari time slots in a day (7:30, 9:30, 11:30, and 15:30). Each slot has usually 2/3 boats taking in 30 tourists each. We got a chance to see Wild Boars, Indian Bisons, Elephants, and hundreds of thousands of water-birds. Make sure to book your... 更多
Visited in Jan'17. Overall it was quite average and a letdown. First booked for the 3 hour nature walk, which was actually only 2 hours as the guide took his own time getting ready and then we got back early as well.

We had the nature walk at the sanctuary a day earlier. The nature walk was for 2.30 hours. The guide was well versed with various animals & plants.
