  • Very Poorly maintained Snake Park, Felt very sad for the voiceless souls.The water inside crocodile enclosure or even near the monster lizard was very dirty. in all very pathetic state... How sad thes...  more »
  • A good place which children and adults will find interesting. The place is more of a reptile park. It is well maintained and one can spend a couple of hours here. My 7 year old daughter looked up this...  more »
  • Can keep your family engaged for about an hour. Thats it! I am not recommending this for a busy schedule traveller hence its quite far from Kannur town. But the route is scenic in the final leg.

  • great experience. very great. should be here if you visit kannur atleat once. coz its a must for every wildlife and nature lovers; as well as entertainment freaks... :)
  • The Parassinikadavu Snake Park is one of the major attractions of Kannur District itself. The Snake Park, which is a subsidiary unit of the Pappinisseri VishachikitsaSociety, is the only one of its kind in the State and perhaps the whole of India. The park is dedicated to the preservation and conservation of snakes, most of which are becoming extinct gradually. There is a large collection of poisonous and non-poisonous snakes. There are three snake pits, fifteen glass cases for snakes and two large glass houses for King Cobras in the park. Other than the snakes, there are other kinds of rare animals, reptiles and birds like the endangered species of Simhavalan Monkeys and Crocodiles. Location: Parassinikadavu, 20 kms north of Kannur. Nearest Railway Station: Pappinissery Nearest major Railway Station: Kannur Nearest Bus Station: Parassinikadavu Nearest major Bus Stations: Taliparamba, Kannur Nearest Airports: Mangalore(100 kms), Kozhikode (140 kms).
  • Small collection but a nice plaCe with a variety of snakes including the King Cobra. At the entrance there is small collection of fish, followed by turtles, alligators, monkeys, birds. Wondering why it was named snake park. Toilets are well maintained.
  • The place has few other animals (crocodile, wild cat, jackal, monkeys, varieties of fishes, peacock etc) than snakes. The area is small and cannot accommodate much people. But there is class regarding the snakes which was worth listening. Also the snacks and tea shops are run but the park authorities itself. Worth visiting if travelling by kids and time available is less.
  • Marine life is a new attraction. Mostly reptiles to see. Porcupine, peacock and few other birds and animals fills the place. An ice cream shop in the centre will complete your journey.
