Day 4

Trip to Thekkady

Exotic birds and wildlife are never far away in Kerala and your visit to Thekkady is a chance to see some of the most stunning species right up close and personal.  Thekkady is home to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary named after the Periyar River which runs through it.  This is a large space to commune with nature however you fancy, walking, riding or cycling.  There is a spectacular lake in this National Park called Lake Periyar.  A lake cruise is a great way to view the animals from a distance as they come down to the water’s edge to drink untroubled by the boats and unaware of the visitors.  Indian Gaur, elephants, deer and monkeys are just some of the regular sights at Thekkady and you will have plenty of time to linger and observe before heading to your resort hotel for dinner.

Thekkady Sightseeing and Boating

Thekkady is a spice haven.  Take a Spice Tour with a knowledgeable guide who will show you the plants and herbs used as the basis for Ayurveda medicines.  This is a fascinating insight into one of the world’s oldest systems of holistic healing. 

For elephant enthusiasts, Thekkady can offer the renowned Elephant Junction where you can ride an elephant through the spice plantations; there is nothing that will bring you closer to the essence and sense of this magical place.  Trekking or boating are some of the best ways to enjoy the call of the wild, Thekkady is a true jungle destination but if all that sounds way too energetic,  then chill out in one of the many tea gardens in Murikkady.  Imbibe the fragrance and the taste of this special part of Kerala.
