Trip Summary

Thekkady is spice and tiger country by the lake. So boating seems mandatory, and bird-watching. Do the latter while floating on bamboo rafts, perhaps combining a hike to the Periyar Forest. Ride an elephant? There's a short ride as well as a safari you can do here. Walking seems the best way to see a jungle close, do take the Nature/Border/Green/Cloud Walks on offer. Alternatively do the Jungle Scout trip or hop on a jeep for the Jungle Safari. Or do the Periyar Tiger Trail or Pugmark Trail in pursuit of the Big Cat, exciting? Here's more, mount the All Terrain Vehicle for a buggy ride to anywhere. Or go back in time on the bullock cart ride to the village on the border. Check out the Spice Plantations, the Tea Factory, a Farm and a tribal village and wrap with performances from the tribal artists or Kathakali or Kalaripayattu.
