Idukki Wildlife Sanctuary is an enchanting vista with steep mountains, undulating hills and valleys spreading over Thodupuzha and Peermedu taluks of Idukki district in Kerala.
It lies along the Idukki dam reservoir and is isolated from the main tract of high range forests.
The sanctuary is home to many elephants and a variety of other mammals, including wild dogs, sambar deer, mouse deer, barking deer, wild boars, etc.
In addition, the sanctuary harbors rich floristic diversity with forest types such as west coast tropical evergreen forests, semi-evergreen forests, moist deciduous forests, hill sholas and grasslands.
