...& on sunday an opportunity to travel!

... we arranged for an early start and decided to take it easy and go to Top Slit and Parambikulam wildlife reserve.... where there are about 1700 tigers...

Part of the team on the sunday day out
Benjamin, Sverre, Alex, Vasek, Amanda... Gastón & I with professor


On the way to the reserve we stopped at Arulmigu Masani Amman Anaimalai temple:
in temple, goddess Arulmigu Masani Amman is the presiding deity

Then we arrived to Top Slit and after lunch went, over the border, to Kerala, for a 3 ride to hopefully see some wild animals the Parambikulam wild life reserve is well known for.

We were lucky and did see wild indian elephants, monkeys, marsh crocodiles, gaurs, sloth bears, sambar deer ... the countryside was worth while because the Parambikulam wildlife sanctuary lies in the southern part of the Western Ghat, between the Anamalai hills and Nelliampathy hills.  We saw the highest peak,  Karimala (1438m), and two out of the three man-made reservoirs namely Parambikulam, Thunacadavu and Peruvaripalla.
