    I had set my alarm at 6.00 AM for the morning trekking with the guide. He arrived to our hut sharp at 6.30 am and we started our morning trekking. After a brief walk on the road we got down the mountains and then got on to the road used only by the forest officials. We couldn't spot any wild during our trekking. But, the morning walk in the forests itself was very exciting and refreshing. We walked for around 4-5 kms and came back to the hut at 8.30 AM. After the breakfast at 9.30 we started our journey back to Chennai. We were so excited that we decided to go back again during monsoon.

    Hey..how was the accommodation and all? Can you share some pics of interiors of the hut accommodation you booked? I guess, this is not suggestible in summer?

    What are the other types of accommodations available?

    Sorry Nithrath. I did not take any interior pictures. But, it was above average if not good. They have a variety of accomodation/packages available. Check the below website for more information. They highly recommend Tented Niche.

    Parambikulam Tiger Reserve

    Note:- Avoid Parambikulam at this time. It should be fine from last week of May.

    I was planning this for long time. You are inspiring me to get this going. Second week of June is what I am planning for this.
