The region of Thekkady has come into the radar of international ecology because of its famous Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary. The dense evergreen forest cover is the habitat for a variety of wildlife such as Tigers, Elephants, Wild Boar, Nilgiri Tahr, Lion-tailed Macaque, Sambar, Malabar Giant Squirrel, and Nilgiri Langurs. The eco-tourism of the region got impetus in 1978 when the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary was given a status of a Tiger Reserve. This stimulated the communities to leap forward and make a concerted effort in boosting the Thekkady Kerala tourism. You can also enjoy the man-made lake streaming inside the sanctuary and called as Periyar Lake Thekkady or the Mullaperiyar dam. This was the first dam built by the British Engineers, in 1887.
The sanctuary is rife with large spice plantations where you can bag a few exotic species. The area offers a wonderful opportunity to take a boat cruise ride in the lake and enjoy the escapade in the wilderness. Near the catchment area of the Park, bamboo rafting is undertaken by the lovers of water sports. The Forest Department of the Park organises a nature walk to engage the nature lovers in the talks and trails of greenery. You can also take up elephant ride, jeep safari, jungle patrol, trekking, as well as Ayurveda massages and spend the night at Thekkady. You can see various cultural events in the evening such as the martial arts of Kerala or a mellow Kathakali performance.
We will drive you back to Cochin for some more sightseeing. Fort Kochi is known for its colonial connections. It was here that Chinese fishing nets were brought in by the traders of the court of Kubla Khan. Take a tour of the impressive St Francis Church which was the oldest to be built by the Europeans in India. The Navy Museum affords a chance to delve deep into the maritime history of India. The museum was established in 2001 to keep people abreast of the naval might of India and its background. You can explore Jewish Synagogue, Santa Cruz Basilica, Marine walk way, Mattanchery palace, Marine drive, boating, and Tripunitura Hill palace. After you are done, our representatives will drop you at the Cochin Airport/Railway station/Bus stand.
