Periyar Wild life Sanctuary- Thekkady (191 km from Kochi)

This wildlife sanctuary in the Idukki district of Kerala is set around the Periyar Lake-an artificial lake created by a dam on the Periyar River. Originally the royal hunting ground of the Maharajas of Travancore, Periyar is now a protected National Park. Tourists often take a boat cruise along the lake, to get a glimpse of the animals that might come to the waters edge to quench their thirst.
