Boat Ride

A beautiful blend of nature’s scenic vistas and rich biodiversity, Periyar is one of the best places to travel in Kerala. Famed for its Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, another popular attraction here is the Periyar Lake. The Periyar Lake in Thekkady is part of the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, and was formed during the construction of the dam across the Mullaperiyar River in the year 1895.

The Periyar Lake offers one of its kind wildlife sighting experience. A serene boat ride lets you watch the animals closely, amidst the comfort of your boat. A boat ride in the Lake is the best way to nurture the beauty of the lake and the national park.

Boasting of a rich ecosystem, one can spot various kinds of birds near the lake. The Periyar Lake also houses several species of fish, offering soothing views of tea, cardamom, pepper and coffee plantations around the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary.

Periyar Lake has a small island that houses a beautiful Lake Palace. The Palace was once the summer palace of the King of Travancor, and serves as an ideal place for nature lovers. A visit to the lake offers a relaxing environment as it is away from the hustle of city life.

The boat rides at the lake are arranged by the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC). One can sight herds of elephants grazing the place at regular intervals. Darters, egrets and kingfishers can be seen flocking around the withered trees that rise out of the lake.

Best time to visit
A majority of the wildlife activity in the area can be best experienced during the summer months of March and April.
