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.

    Ashish's 8 days trip to Thekkady

    We had a wonderful 10 days holiday in Kerala which will remain very long in our memories. We had a great experience with PostcardTrip. Mr. Nitin, advisor from PostcardTrip is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable person and gave us the best hotels and arranged all the things in excellent way
    . Our driver, Mr. Anand was also very professional and helpful and made our trip very smooth by showing each and every place on the trip. Kerala is a breathtakingly beautiful state full of splendid waterfalls, hill stations, wildlife, backwaters, beaches, temples and palaces, most of all friendly welcoming people. I am sure that I will contact PostcardTrip again for my upcoming trips also. Amazing views, peaceful places.

    Aman's 9 days trip to Thekkady

    The cab was not upto the mark.. it was very dirty and not in very impressive condition. But on top of all this, I didn't receive even a single call from travel triangle executive about how was the trip going.. so I would rather directly book with an agent instead of going through travel triangle.
