Silent Valley National Park

Silent Valley National Park

The nearest railway station is Palghat Junction (Palakkad). From Palakkad, go to Mannarkkad, and from there to Mukkali. Both places are well connected by private buses. If you are planning to stay at Mukkali, reserve rooms in advance at the Forest dept resthouse. Or else you can stay at Mannarkkad and hire a jeep to reach Mukkali by 8AM. Mukkali is about 60 km from Palakkad, with Mannarkkad en route. The visit to the Valley and Kunti river will take only a day, and you can return back to Palakkad the same evening. Another close railway station is Coimbatore Junction. From Coimbatore, take the road to Anakatty(around 30 kms) from Coimbatore and from Ankatty to Agali (15 kms)and then Mukkali(20 kms). The total distance via the Coimbatore route is only around 65kms. Its almost a straight road drive from Coimbatore to Mukkali. The scenic roadway keeps one captivated all through. Permission is required from the Kerala Forest Department. For a short one day trip (usually taken by tourists), permission can be obtained on the spot at the Forest Department office at Mukkali. This trip includes a short trek of about 2-3 km to the hanging bridge at the Kunti River. The entry point of the road to the park is Mukkali. From Mukkali, it takes a 30 km jeep ride to get into the actual entry point of the park. Jeeps can be hired from Mukkali. It is difficult for cars to traverse, so don't attempt to drive unless you are adventurous and have an SUV and good skill on mountain roads.  wikitravel.org
