Posted by Jothis @ Munnar Tour Guide
Ervikulam National Park along with Rajamala is the precious habitat of the Niligiri Tahr in Kerala. The park occupies an area of 97 sq km and was initially a hunting preserve of the British planters. In 1950s, an NGO realized the importance of protecting the tahrs and stepped in to demand the declaration of area as a sanctuary. In 1975, the area became a Wildlife Sanctuary and in 1978 it was designated a National Park. The tahrs here are so used to the human beings that they do not shy away from even blocking the road. The park is open from 7 am to 5 pm and also offers some breathtaking views of its flora.
