Periyar Lake cruise is an invigorating way to explore the wilderness of Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary in Kerala. The lovely Periyar Lake is an artificial water body created a hundred years back. The Periyar River was restricted by the dam which has led to the creation of the lake of unrivalled beauty and the life source of blessed species. The boat cruise is organized by the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation and the Periyar Forest Department.
The 2-3 hours cruise is incredible for the amazing sights of the panorama apart from the viewing of species calling Periyar Reserve their home. While cruising the waters, one can easily view the animals who come to the lake shores to quench their thirst. Elephants, deer and reptiles can be easily spotted. Abundant water birds make homes on the tree trunks submerged in the waters. Spotting the ferocious Tigers is the icing on the cake.
Best time to visit:Open throughout the year but best time is October to March.
Timings:6 AM to 6 PM
