Travel: India - National Park

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Travel: India - National Park

Postby debbin01 » Tue Mar 30, 2010 6:35 pm

For Indian citizens, fees are not very high for the national park. Approximately, they are (in 2006): Vehicle (Jeep) rent from Mukkali to the Valley: Rs 500/- Guide charges: Rs 200/- Entry fee: Rs 50/- per head Vehicle entry fee: Rs 250/- per jeep Cameras (still camera): Rs 50/- per camera Jeeps for hire from Mukkali (nearest point) or Mannarkkad (nearest town).

If one is visiting Silent valley Kerala do take a bath in the Bhawani River at Mukkali. One or two tiny restaurants at Mukkali. Have to inform in advance for a fairly large group. No major eating joints or restaurants at Mukkali. It is advisable to have food at Mannarkkad before travelling to Mukkali from Palakkad. Food is decent; please don't expect a "city-type" restaurant here! Alcohol is strictly prohibited inside the forest. The department officials will check your luggage before they let you proceed to the valley.

For staying overnight Forest department has a guest house/dormitory at Mukkali. Rooms have to be booked in advance. Tourists are not allowed to stay overnight at the Valley; they have to return back to Mukkali by evening. So camping in the jungle is difficult. Mukkali is also densely forested; you may ask permission from the Forest deparment office if you wish to camp in Mukkali. No gurantees.

No many problems. Watch out for leeches in the jungle. Carry table salt from Mukkali to remove leeches from your legs. For getting out Come back to Palakkad to get a train/bus to all parts of India. Nearest airport is Coimbatore, about 120 km away from Silent Valley.

There are over 80 national parks in India, spread all over the country. Seeing a tiger in the wild is a thrilling experience. The chance of spotting a tiger in indian national parks greatly depends on the size of the national park and the number of tigers, and is higher at some parks than others.Bandhavgarh is one of the best places in the world to see tigers in the wild.

Re: Travel: India - Corbett National Park

Postby Elizabeth35 » Sat Nov 09, 2013 6:57 pm

The Corbett Park is mostly famed for being the first national park in India to adopt a tiger reserve project. The Corbett National Park tourist places receive thousands of visitors every year, majorly because of the varied forms of wildlife that are found in the park. Not only does the park provide a haven for the tigers, but for their prey and numerous other species, as well. The Corbett national park is not just a typical national park, but a primal jungle that captures the imagination of many with its breath-taking beauty and diversity. The park is a perfect spot for both sight seers, as well as any visitors who are out to have an adventure. Some of the wildlife such as the tiger, king cobra, flying fox, chital and samba, which are rare in other parts of the world, are found in the Corbett Park.
