The jeep safari to Gavi, a picturesque slice of Periyar’s rich forestlands, in Pathanamthitta district, is a beautiful off-the-track destination, perfect for a wilderness retreat replete with trekking, birding, canoeing and facilities for boarding. It is a world-acclaimed tourism major ranked amongst leading eco-tourism hubs and an un-missable holiday hotspot.
Gavi, which lies close to the Sabarimala Temple, has become a popular adventure hub but is still on the off- the- beaten –track, so one can enjoy many moments of tranquil delight on the tourist routes in this reserve forest. This biological reserve, with its mosaic of hills and valleys, tropical forests, sprawling grasslands, sholas, cascading waterfalls, and cardamom plantation, is home to an abundance of elephants and endangered species like lion-tailed macaque; Nilgiri tahrs etc.
