The forest department organises a night trek in which national park?

  1. Periyar National Park
  2. Eravikulam National Park

Periyar National Park

The forest department of Periyar Tiger Reserve offers a 3 hour night trek as a part of a night patrolling program. Groups of up to 6 are taken in batches from 7 PM to 4 AM. An armed guard and two guides accompany each group of participants.

The main objective of this programme is to help participants understand the work of the forest department. Sandalwood smugglers are rampant in these forests and the programme helps the forest department protect the forest while educating travelers about how life is in the forest during the night.
