Elephants at Idukki Wildlife Sanctuary Basic Guidelines -
» Please enter the Park only after taking the necessary permits and follow all the rules.
» Drive slowly in the Park. In this way you can see, observe and enjoy the most, without disturbing the wildlife.
» Respect the wild animals and maintain a safe distance from them. Remember, you are in their home and they get first priority.
» Switch off your car stereo or transistor. The quieter you are, the more the chances of your seeing wildlife.
» Wear dull-coloured clothes. Bright colours alarm most wild animals and they flee.
» Don’t carry guns or other weapons. Feel free to shoot with a camera instead.
» Do not smoke or light campfires in the forest. Accidental fires can destroy this wonderful jungle in no time.
» Don’t get off your vehicle at any point in the Park except where it’s allowed. This is for your own safety and the safety of wildlife.
» Help keep the park pollution-free. While inside the park, please put your entire non-biodegradable litter (tin cans, plastic, glass bottles, metal foils etc.) into the bag provided and dispose of it on your way out.
» Keep to the specified roads and trails. Driving off track you may trample growing trees and cause disturbance to resting animals and their youngs.
