Grasslands of Silent Valley in Palakkad, Kerala
Silent Valley National Park, unique preserve of natural rainforests, is one of the popular national parks in India located at Palakkad. A rich storehouse of biodiversity, the evergreen forests at Silent Valley begin to give way to stunted forests, called sholas, interspersed with open grasslands.
The River Kunthi descending from the Niligiri hills above from an altitude of 2000 m flows about 25 km through the valley and this national park is a veritable treasure house and a gene pool of tropical flora and fauna.
Entry to the national park: 08 00 hrs to 13.00 hrs
