Thekkady Tiger Trail



Thekkady Wildlife Sanctuary (also called Periyar Tiger Reserve) is nestled along the Western Ghats mountains ranges of Kerala in South India. The main objective of this programme is to create an awareness about the need for conservation of rare and endangered species of plants and animals. The local guides for the tour are former forest dependents from local communities whose earlier negative dependence on the forest was a matter of great concern.
