Around the park are some interesting aromatic spice gardens. Many have good guides who'll tell you about the medicinal value of each spice and maybe startle you with how much of the research is millennia old.
The months of March and April constitute the driest part of the year, because of which the animals spend a lot of time near the lake in the Periyar National Park. Even the tiger may be spotted approaching the waters in the Periyar National Park. Animals may be seen from motorboats on the lake or from watchtowers set up in the Periyar National Park. There is a good chance of spotting an occasional tiger in this relatively peaceful corner of the Periyar National Park.
