Welcome to Eravikulam national park

the home of Nilgiri Tahr

The Eravikulam National Park will be closed to the public during February and March 2015

The Eravikulam National Park will be closed to visitors for two months from 2nd February to to 1st April 2015 during the calving season of Nilgiri Tahr. The objective of the closure is to facilitate safe calving and to minimise disturbances to the new born lambs of Nilgiri Tahr. Soliciting sincere co-operation from all.

The most sought after destination in Munnar is the Eravikulam National Park, the first of its kind in Kerala, where the endangered Nilgiri Thar
is protected. Spread over 97 sq. km., this park holds the largest viable population of Tahr, several other species of rare animals, birds and butterflies.
The park offers a magnificent view of the tea plantations and also of the rolling hills caressed by blankets of mist. The park becomes a hot destination when the hill slopes get covered in a carpet of blue, resulting from the flowering of Neelakurinji.
It is a plant endemic to this part of the Western Ghats which blooms once in twelve years.
