How to Reach
Air : The nearest airport is at
Coimbatore (in neighbouring
Tamilnadu State), about 55 km and at Kochi.
Thrissur (24km) and
Coimbatore ( 55km ) are the nearest railway stations for reaching
the park. Palghat or Palakkad (80km)is also a convenient rail head.
Road: Regular buses are available from Palakkad (80km) to Mukkali.
Bus transport is only up to Mukkali, nearly 23 km from the park. The rest
of the way has to be covered hiring a van or a jeep from Mukkali or on
foot up to the source of Kunthi river, which flows through the valley
before merging with the Bharathapuzha (Nila). Echippara is the headquarters
of the sanctuary.
