Bamboo Rafting in Perryar


View India 2012 on a2lin04's travel map.

We have chosen one of the program proposed by the government. You need the permission of the governement to enter the parc...
But after the day, we have seen the Bamboo but not really any rafting...

So we were a small group of 13 tourists plus 4 "guides" and a hunter with a gun in case we are facing dangerous animals... At the beginning they advised us that we have to be lucky to see any animals. There are only 43 tigers left (and they are afraid of human) and perhaps 1500 elephant.
Anyway we start our trip by crossing a river were the "boat" was almost under water.

And we were lucky... We've met some animals all around the day:

We continue to walk and reach the lake where we are going to do some bamboo rafting..

the good point is that we are a little bit higher than the boat...

A very long day but so good! 5pm the visit is over... we take a rikschaw to the center because we are very lucky today is the Tiger fest. They take the bigger man (perhaps they had too much beer...) and they just paint a tiger on it... and everybody in the village came to see it!
