Peppara Wildlife Sanctuary

Location:About 50 km from Thiruvananthapuram city enroute to Ponmudi, Thiruvananthapuram district, south Kerala.

Lying on the outskirts of the capital city, the Peppara Wildlife Sanctuary is spread over an area of 53 sq. km. on the Western Ghats and was established in 1938. The place is fascinating for its damsite, thick forest areas, eucalyptus plantations, crystal clear streams and rocky terrains ideal for adventure expeditions.
The sanctuary has a rich population of mammalian fauna and is emerging as a big attraction to wildlife enthusiasts and ornithologists. Elephants, sambar, leopard, lion-tailed macaque and cormorant are commonly seen here.
Recently, a joint effort has been made by Kerala Tourism with the State Forest Department and the Kerala Water Authority to beautify the damsite and provide more entertainment/leisure facilities here.

Getting there:

Nearest railway station : Thiruvananthapuram, about 50 km from the sanctuary.

Nearest airport : Thiruvananthapuram, about 56 km from the sanctuary.
