Default Thread Title:  Pleasant place

A pleasant place to escape from the madding crowds of the cities and towns, Periyar is a nice place to cruise on the lake, a place to enjoy a jungle walk with an opportunity to see the wild animals. Set high in the ranges of the Western Ghats, in Kerala, is the Periyar famous for its National Park and Tiger Reserve. The park has a picturesque lake at the heart of the sanctuary. Formed with the building of a dam in 1895, this reservoir meanders around the contours of the wooded hills, providing a perennial source of water for the local wildlife. Herds of elephant and sambar, gaur and wild pigs wander down to the lakeside and can be observed from the launches that cruise the lake.

The spice village Kerala has very comprehensive Ayurvedic Spa. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of health and connectivity, deals with the well-being of the spirit as well as of the body and mind. The resort offers, in addition to relaxing ayurvedic massages, complete seven and fourteen day Ayurvedic Rejuvenation packages, where a team of Ayurvedic Specialists take you through a routine of massages combined with yoga and spa specific diets.

Situated within the confines of the Western Ghats in the southern Indian state of Kerala, Periyar National Park and Tiger Reserve is one of the most captivating wildlife parks in the world. In 1895, the British undertook water resource management plans for the area and started work on a dam and an artificial lake under the auspices of Col. J. Pennycuick. The picturesque lake in the heart of the sanctuary was originally 26 sq km but now spans an area of 55 sq km. This perennial source of water, which initially led to the submersion of large tracts of forestland, slowly attracted wild animals. It eventually resulted in the adjoining forests being granted protection by the Maharaja of Travancore. Post-1975 Periyar finds itself in the enviable position of being a national park as well as a protected tiger reserve.

Periyar (also known as Thekkady) is a park where one can witness playful pachyderms, whose population is currently around 800. The population of tigers is also increasing appreciably. The terrain ranges from hilly to flat grassland areas at the edges of the lakes. The vegetation is of moist deciduous type.

According to me Rajasthan is the perfect place to take a tour. As you take a tour of Rajasthan, you will explore so many new facets of Rajasthan. Whether it is the sand dunes or the massive forts and palaces, you will realize that there is no other place like Rajasthan. Rajasthan Tourist Attractions are really beautiful and Rajasthan is just the perfect tourist destination.
