    • Trip to Kerala

      we were disappointed with the last moment changes in hotel. I and my wife gone through many hotels and finally we liked one hotel which was Changed by our tour agent when we were going to land in cochi without our confirmation. The best thing happened was our tour cab driver he was really fun meeting with santosh and gave us knowledge our whole Kerala. In Alleppey we were expected to have candle light dinner but it was fake. there was no candle light dinner. It seems if you have known person or a known guide you can plan your trip by yourself because I met with my relatives accidentally at Nagpur airport and he had planned the whole trip by himself.

      It was really a great experience. I chose 5 Days 4 Nights plan to Kerala. (Cochin, Munnar & Allepey) Awesome accommodation, and cab service. Thank you Travel Triangle.

    FAQ's of Thekkady

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    In Thekkady the cost of a one and a half hour ride from the Elephant Junction is roughly Rs. 1300. 

    There is boating, border hiking, Bamboo rafting and Jungle safari to Gavi. The safari includes trekking, pedal boating, visit to cardamon plantations as well as the museum.

    Thekkady is a place that you would visit to be close to nature and as such, it is a peaceful and luxurious experience. A visit with family is ideal and it is an excellent place to spend some down-time with the family and relax. Of course, if you have friends that share a common interest with you, for example, wildlife/nature photography, then it is a great place to visit with them as well.

    In terms of clothes, muted colours like green, brown, grey are recommended as the national park is a main attraction. The clothes should ideally also be comfortable and easy to walk around in. Since the other attractions around Thekkady are nature oriented as well, it makes packing the essentials of mosquito repellent, flashlight and good shoes necessary as well.

     

    The ideal amount of time spent in Thekkady would depend on the traveller's reason for going there. While there are quite a few places around that are not to be missed to see the true beauty of the place, one can ideally see most of them in 3 or 4 days. However, as the biggest attraction is Periyar National Park, anyone visiting Thekkady to spend a few days observing the animals could do with staying a week and seeing some of the other nearby attractions as well.
