An excellent wildlife sanctuary, with very poor guides: the ranger wouldn't discover a single animal, the driver drove so fast, that he almost killed some birds on the road.

This park has a rather good rating. Up to now only from Indian visitors, which have never been to Switzerland, Yosemite or even the Palatina Forest. Getting there as a tourist will lead to disappointment if the expectations are too high. Always. Talking about expectations:...More

Hi Everyone, I am planning to visit Topslip & Parambikulam. I am staying in Topslip and will be visiting parambikulam for a day. There is not clear directions - some say I need permissions from Forest department before going there and own vehicles can go only up to the check post. From there, we have to go by forest vehicles and only if they have sufficient numbers. Can anyone provide details on where & contact details to get permission to visit dam / bamboo rafting or boating, etc?
