IdukkiWildlife_KeralaTourismMaps

          Idukki wildlife sanctuary is characterized by steep mountains, valleys and hills. The artifical lake that is the Kizhakkilachimala Lake adds to the scenic beauty of this lovely wildlife sanctuary. The vegetation at this wildlife park consists of dense forests that include tropical evergreen forests, tropical semi-evergreen forests, meadows and leaf shedding forests.




          Some of the commonly sighted trees in the region include white pine, kuntherekkapine, vayana, bhadraksham, pali, cheeni, rosewood and meadows of rolling grass.


          The Idukki Wildlife Sanctuary here spreads over an area of 77 sq km in the Thodupuzha and Udumpanchola taluks of the district. Situated at an altitude of 450-748 m above sea level, this sanctuary occupies the forest land between the Cheruthoni and Periyar rivers. There is a scenic lake around the sanctuary, covered by an enchanting canopy of tropical ever-green and deciduous trees, and offers boat rides.

They are- a) the west coast tropical evergreen forest, b) west coast tropical semi-evergreen forest, c) southern moist mixed deciduous forest and d) the southern hilltop tropical evergreen forest. Of these four, the tropical evergreen forest comprises one fourth of the total area.
