Working Man Lost In Green Tea Plantation, Periyar, Kerala, India

Periyar is a National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary established in 1934 in the state of Kerala on a location called Thekkady; this protected area which extends over 777 square km, is the unique sanctuary in Kerala to observe wildlife in its natural habitat; the unpolluted mountain air of this place situated 2800 feet above sea level is pleasant while you enjoy the richness of fauna (elephants, tigers, gaurs, wild dogs, otters, tortoises) and flora (spices and in particular pepper); the 26 square km artificial lake allows to cross the park from the safety of a boat and watch elephants enjoying the water; another attraction of this ‘paradise’ is the constant chirping of some of the 60 different species of Birds
