Top Things To Do In Thekkady

Your list of the best things to do, compiled on the basis of actual traveler experiences

There are a number of things to do in Thekkady for visitors and travellers. There is a focus on nature related activities as most of the tourist places in Thekkady are related to nature in one way or another. From the various kinds of safaris that can be embarked upon through the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary to the treks and nature walks across the spice plantations, Thekkady offers a catalog of activities for nature lovers. For those seeking adventure, there are a couple of activities in Thekkady for them as well.

Again, the main attraction being the Periyar Tiger Reserve, a lot of the things to do in Thekkady revolve around it. There are different safaris and walks that travellers can go on to view the various animals in their natural habitats. Options like the regular jeep safari through the forest and elephant safaris are available to see the reserve. The Periyar Tiger Trail is a trail running through the forest and visitors can get a package and trek on this trail. It can be for 2 or 3 days and there is an escort of local guides and guards for the same. It is as ideal as an activity gets in Thekkady with trekkers exposed to the various species of flora and fauna that are found and preserved here. It should be noted that this is recommended only for people between the age of 15-65 only as it can get strenuous.

For the more adventurous kind, there is an opportunity to go bamboo rafting in Thekkady. This is an all day activity with rafting taking place in some of the forest’s most dense areas. For those who enjoy bird watching and bird photography, the bamboo rafting is a must do as well, with this being the best way to get good pictures of birds and smaller mammals like the Nilgiri Langur and the giant flying squirrel. Another one of the adventure activities in Thekkady is going boating in Periyar lake. Much like the bamboo rafting, this too provides an excellent view of the verdant forests and hills around.

    Prosenjit's 7 days trip to Thekkady

    We have an excellent trip through Namaskaram Travels. The Hotels at Alleppey & Varkala are awesome. Hotel Rooms at Kovalam are also decent but after staying at Varkala - hotel, Kovalam's one is very ordinary. Although the staffs are awesome and helped us a lot at kovalam. Location of Kovalam's hotel
    is very nice and exact on the beach. Our agent Vineet also responded well and also inquired about our tour in between as well. with 2 Kids and a senior citizen, Me & My spouse have enjoyed a lot.
