Eravikulam National Park, located in the Idukki district of Kerala, India, is a renowned wildlife sanctuary and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is best known for being the habitat of the endangered Nilgiri Tahr, a species of mountain goat endemic to the Western Ghats.

Established in 1978, Eravikulam National Park spans an area of approximately 97 square kilometers and is characterized by rolling grasslands, shola forests, and rugged terrain. The park is home to a rich variety of flora and fauna, including endemic species of plants, birds, butterflies, and mammals.

The Nilgiri Tahr, also known as the Nilgiri Ibex, is the flagship species of Eravikulam National Park and a major attraction for visitors. The park is home to the largest population of Nilgiri Tahrs in the world, and efforts have been made to conserve and protect this endangered species.

One of the highlights of Eravikulam National Park is the Neelakurinji, a rare flower that blooms once every 12 years, covering the hillsides in a carpet of blue. The blooming of Neelakurinji attracts tourists from around the world and is a spectacular sight to behold.

Visitors to Eravikulam National Park can explore the park through guided nature walks and trekking trails, offering opportunities to spot wildlife, enjoy panoramic views of the Western Ghats, and experience the pristine beauty of the region.

To manage visitor flow and conserve the fragile ecosystem, a limited number of visitors are allowed into the park each day, and entry permits must be obtained from the Forest Department. Additionally, certain areas of the park may be closed to visitors during the breeding season of the Nilgiri Tahr.
