Thekkady – Perfect Destination for Plan a Trip
Thekkady is a perfect getaway for people who love to make themselves lost in undulating green hills, thick forests, shimmering lakes, and cool, spice-scented air. With all this and more, when you want to shake your place off and escape the heat, head to this luxuriantly green place and rejuvenate your mind, body and inner peace! Situated in Idukki district, at an altitude of 900-1800m above sea level, Thekkady is an ideal destination for adventure-loving backpackers and green panthers alike. The region is home to a very rich bio-diverse Periyar National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary, which is both an elephant and a tiger reserve. Thekkady is very closely related to this renowned sanctuary due to which the names Thekkady and Periyar are used interchangeably. The wildlife reserve is one of the finest in India, with its abundant treasures of tropical flora and fauna. It is home to many endangered species and rich tribal cultures. The sanctuary is bounded by mountain ridges and surrounds the Periyar Lake, the reservoir of the 120-year-old MullaperiyarDam. The lake and the Periyar River flow through the forests and serve as a great way of spotting wildlife. Apart from the forests, the ever-rolling hills are also home to several spice plantations, speckled with small towns and villages. For those who love the outdoors, there are yet many paths to explore and many a trek to walk on!
