Kumily is the nearest town to Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary. Most visitors will probably see the bus station, before hiring a taxi or tuk tuk to the park, and not visit the town.
I enjoyed looking around Kumily. Although there are some souvenir shops, it is still very much a working town, and a busy terminal for buses travelling to/ from destinations in Kerala and bordering Tamil Nadu.
Lining the main road through Kumily are many shops selling crafts, spices, teas. Small shacks serve hot drinks and snacks from steaming pots. Rice, biscuits and nuts are stacked in sacks and bags, along with multi coloured fruits and veg. Theres also a market, near the bus stand. Tailors offer to make up clothing for you
An Ayurvedic hospital, is to be found very near to the Central hospital.
Tourist Info, money exchanges,Post Office are all here.
Please visit my Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary page for more info/photos
