This is one of the great community based initiatives involving the native tribal community. The full day excursion takes the guests first by a trek about 2 hours deep into the National Park. A very peaceful and relaxing part is done on a Bamboo raft to reach into the remote reaches of the Periyar lake. This particular excursion gives a very close acquaintance with the fauna and flora of the Periyar forest. Incidentally the Periyar National Park is the only park in India, where visitors are allowed to trek, making this one of the great experiences of the wild.
