Thekkady is a Nature-lover's dream come true, situated in the southern segment of the Western Ghats in the Cardamom Hills at an altitude of 2,900 to 6,000ft. The sanctuary covers an area of 777sq.km. and the valley is a major watershed for two of Kerala’s largest rivers, Periyar and Pamba and is close to two centres of pilgrimage—the hill shrine of Sabarimala and Mangala Devi Temple.
The reserve is rich in biodiversity with 62 species of mammals, 320 species of birds, 45 species of reptiles, 27 species of amphibians, 38 species of fish and 160 butterfly species apart from 1966 varieties of plants. A boat trip in the reservoir will most likely let you spot herds of elephants, gaur, deer, antelopes and a rich variety of birds and if you are luckier even a tiger or leopard too.
You may choose to take it easy and enjoy the place as it is for its unhurried pace. Or if you are of the adventurous kind and choose to explore the jungles, there are many activities to choose from. Hitting Nature trails, visiting spice plantations, experiencing Ayurveda, enjoying a Kathakali performance live being just a few of them.
