About Eravikulam National

Eravikulam National Park is located in the Idukki District of Kerala in the high altitudes of Western Ghats. The Park is in proximity to the famous hill station Munnar. The Sanctuary was established in 1975 and was upgraded in 1978 to achieve the level of a National Park.

The sanctuary was built as a conservatory for Nilgiri Tahr, endangered specie of wild goat. Now there is an immense boost in the population of this animal in the Park and it is reported that the Park has the largest known population of Tahr's existing in the world. The sanctuary spreads across an area of 97 square kilometers.

The tourists can enjoy trekking in the highest Peak of South India, Anamudi, located in the Park area. The months of January and February are the best time to visit Eravikulam National Park.
