Choolannur Pea Fowl Sanctuary, Palakkad

Choolannur Pea Fowl Sanctuary orMayiladumpara, as it is locally known,is a premier haven for peacocks in Kerala. Located in Palakkad, getting to the 500 hectare enclosure requires a trek through dense forests. The view however makes up for it immediately. One is enraptured by the vivid colours and majestic shades of this kingly species. At this pristinely maintained heaven, dawn and dusk tend to be the best viewing times. Photographers can capture unique shots of peacocks here along with many other rare bird species and medicinal herbs.
