TDY - 049 - Greenery , Periyar sanctuary

Stock Image No: TDY 049
Greenery on the banks of Periyar lake, Thekkady.

The best time to visit Periyar is between October and April. In March and April,when water gets low and the grass dries out, animals have to spend more time near the lake and elephants are especially dependent on the lake during this period. This is the time of year when they can often be seen bathing and swimming, both to cool off as well as to get from one feeding area to the next. The grass is also short during this time of year and animal visibility thus increased.
