Nature Walk

Overview

Thekkady, 5km from Kumily, is the gateway to the pristine environs of the Periyar National Park and Tiger Reserve, amidst the aromatic Cardamom Hills in Kerala’s Idukki District. Also known as Thekkady, Periyar also happens to be one of the oldest protected areas in India. The name Thekakdy is inspired by the teak (thekku) trees that grow bounteously here. The mighty Periyar River, a perennial waterway, is the lifeline in this untamed, untouched wilderness. One of the best ways to explore the area is on foot by signing up for one of the eco-tourism programmes operated by Kerala Tourism Development Corporation this is a shared walk with other tourists through tourism-designated trails. Sightings of rare birds, butterflies and animals such as the handsome Malabar Giant Squirrel add a nice flavour to the walks through this immense botanical wealth. Boat rides offer better wildlife sightings such as that of elephant herds, the majestic Indian gaur and sambar
