Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary

The Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary is part of the Idukki District and is located in the Western Ghats. This region, which covers an area of 90.44 km2, is densely populated with a diverse range of indigenous flora and animals, making it a popular tourist destination. Chinnar is home to a wide range of medicinal plants as well as star tortoises. The grizzled giant squirrel, gaur, spotted deer, tufted grey langur, slender loris, crocodile, wild elephant, tiger, leopard, and many birds are among the animals that live there. Because it is a government-protected area, you can see vegetation and fauna in their natural habitat, free of the city's clamour. The mixed deciduous forests found here are also good for some basic hiking.
