70% of the boundary is already consolidated with permanent cairns.

Internal Boundaries

The Park is now managed as a single unit and hence there are no internal boundaries.

Ecological Boundaries

On the northern side, the Park is bordered partly by the Kurinjimala Sanctuary. The eastern and southern sides are bordered by the proposed Palani Hills National Park and forests of Theni Division respectively. On the western side are the forests and plantations of Kannan Devan Hills. At the landscape level, the Park has continuity with Anamala Tiger reserve, Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Eravikulam National Park and the forests of Kannan Devan Hills.
