Periyar National Park and Tiger Reserve
Periyar National Park and Tiger Reserve is one of the 27 tiger reserves in India, and is only about an hour away from Verkala. Periyar National Park and Tiger Reserve’s employees are made entirely up of volunteer workers, so all admission prices are directly helping the conservation of forests, and the endangered animals within the reserve.
Admission prices vary anywhere from $1,00RS, to $5.000RS (or $2.00 USD TO $107.00 USD) Admissions prices vary so much because there are so many different attractions available at the Periyar National Park and Tiger Reserve, such as river rafting, overnight camping, hiking, walking, and sight seeing multiple habitats, such as the Tiger Reserve.
The National Park is a sanctuary for animals and tourists contribute to their care every time they visit the park. This park is one of the best Verkala day trips options.
