Mayiladumpara is at Nedungathpara, about 25 km south of Palakkad. A right turn from Nedungathpara will lead you to these woodlands that is home to hundreds of peacocks. While you’re on the winding road, bordered by tall trees and scattered rocks, which leads to this peacock country, you will be able to hear the piercing squawks of these beautiful creatures.

It is estimated that the number of peacocks in the sanctuary is about 200. The birds can be seen mostly during dawn and dusk. The dance of these free, wild birds during overcast days is breathtaking.

There is a forest outpost five kilometres inside the sanctuary. The sanctuary, which is not fenced or gated, allows free access to all.
