The Wild Side of God's Own Country

Perched at the border of Tamil Nadu and Kerala, Thekkady is home to South India’s most popular wildlife sanctuary, Periyar Tiger Reserve. This 777 sq. km. national park has a 26sq. km. artificial lake and is home to gaur, sambar, wild boar, langur, around 40 elusive tigers, and a large population of almost 1000 elephants.

The terrain is also a spice paradise with an abundance of cardamom, vanilla, pepper, cinnamon, coffee, tea, cloves and nutmeg thriving in these wild environs. Calls of the pachyderms from the distant and the excited chirping of birds ring through the air to signal that you're in Thekkady. The riveting sight of the elephant herds as they troop down to the water's edge is a truly magical experience.
