neyyar wildlife
Get back to nature and experience the wonderful wildlife of Kerala….
Visit the NEYYAR DAM situated in the south-eastern corner of the Western Ghats. It serves as the basin of the Neyyar. Mullayar and Karllar rivers. A pretty picnic spot, ideal for tracking in the spectacular scenery and watching the sun sparkle across tranquil blue lake. Boating trips tempt many travelers.
The Dam is part of the Neyyar Wildlife Sancturay and sits in the shadow of the towering AGASTIAR PEAK – an important landmark. This area gorws some of the rarest medicinal herbs in the state of Kerala and flourishes with flora and fauna. The forests are home to elephants, wild buffaloes, wild boar, porcupines, tigers and a variety of snakes. You can visit the LION SAFARI PARK and CROCADILE BREEDING CENTRE
This peaceful environment is also a sanctuary to nearby neighbors – the world famous SHIVANADA YOGA ASHAM
