Formerly known as Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary, Parambikulam Tiger Reserve lies in the Nelliampathy–Anamalai landscape of the Western Ghats, around 3 hours away from Palakkad city. It houses one of the first scientifically managed teak plantations of the world and also plays host to the world's oldest and tallest teak tree, which is almost 50 m high, as tall as a 17-storey building! The reserve is home to more than 30 tigers and several sightings are reported every season! It is also home to several other animals, birds and fish. Other than wildlife safaris, the reserve is known for its natural beauty, with undulating hills from the top of which the panorama of the wilderness is mesmerising. Looking down upon the canopy of dense green, punctuated by the blue waters of a lake and narrow streams is ethereal! There are a few tribal settlements inside the reserve, where tourists are often offered lunches.
