Periyar Inheritance

Tiger by Kalyan Varma

An incredible tiger habitat, Periyar is nevertheless not the easiest place to see the striped predator because of its very dense undergrowth.

Carnivore pugmarks and scats are visible on virtually all the trails, suggesting a healthy tiger, leopard and dhole population.
