HISTORY HIGHLIGHTS MANAGEMENT ZONATION

For administrative convenience, the Tiger Reserve is divided into three zones.

The core area of 430 sq. km. is the primary watershed of river Periyar, free of all disturbances and intended for total preservation.
Tourism Zone
The 55 sq.km. area around the lake and the lake fringes from the boat landing to the dam site is the tourism zone.
