The Periyar Tiger Reserve is South India's most popular wildlife sanctuary. The sanctuary is home to about 1000 elephants, about 35 tigers, bison, wild boars, langurs and deer beside a bewildering array of other species. The vegetation of the reserve is made of evergreen and semi-evergreen rainforests with the canopy at times reaching a height of 40 to 50 metres. The Periyar and Pamba rivers flow through the forest and a large artificial lake has been created where animals come to drink.

People-oriented community-based ecotourism is the hallmark of Periyar Tiger Reserve. These programs are conducted by locals who, by taking tourists along not only interpret the values of Periyar and enhance the visitor experience but also add to the protection of the park and earn a livelihood out of it. Hence, when visitors participate in these programs they are directly contributing to the cause of conservation and community welfare.
