Thekkady tour activities


Thekkady (Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary) is a fascinating natural wildlife reserve spread across 777 sq. km, which was declared a Tiger Reserve in 1978. The Sanctuary is centred around the 24 sq km artificial lake formed by Mullaperiyar Dam across the Periyar river. There are three watch towers to observe wild life at Edappalayam and Manakkavala and Thannikudi.

The Mangladevi Temple (12 km away), on the northern boundary of the Periyar reserve, the famous plantation town Peerumedu, named after the Sufi saint Peer Mohammed, Munnar, the popular hill station known for Neelakurinji, a flower which washes the hills in a blue hue every twelve years and the highest peak in South India, Anamudi(2695 m), are places worth visiting.


The forest department arranges plantation eco-tours through the spice, coffee and tea plantations, as well as visits to tea factories, tribal hamlets in and around the hills. To enjoy the forest experience you can go for elephant rides, boat cruiseson the Periyar Lake, and trekking in Kurisumala, Pullumedu, Ottakathalamedu, Grampi, Nellikkampetty and Manakkavala. 

The Arubi creek (16 kms), Crusoe Island (19 kms), Manakkavala (10 kms),Mullakudy (29 km), Pavarasu (19 kms), Periyar Dam (12 kms), Thannikudy(38 kms) and Peermede (40 kms) are ideal picnic spots. The Tribal Heritage Programme gives you a glimpse into the tribal way of life with its tour of the grey thatched tribal hamlets, traditional fishing and hunting gears, indigenous medicinal plants, as well as the Tribal Heritage Museum.
