A jungle patrol along the fringe eco development zones of the Periyar Tiger Reserve offers guests to have a firsthand experience of the task of patrolling the reserve. Lasting from 7 pm in the eveing to 4 in the morning, the activity seeks to involve the visitors to involve them actively in protecting the reserves.
One should have the necessary physical fitness and mental toughness to endure this activity as it is not easy and for the faint hearted. The maximum duration for a slot is 3 hours and maximum capacity of one slot is limited to 8 visitors (to move in two separate teams). The guest will be accompanied by two protection watchers and one armed forest guard. This is truly a different experience as it offers an experience of the jungle in its mystic, nocturnal glory.
