    Udaipur

    Abhinav's 5 days trip to Thekkady

    Well. This was an family trip to kerela.The stay, location sanitization,was good at Munnar and Thekkady.But we didn't like it at Allepy .The sight scenary is limited and appealing only up to Munnar.Rest is too hot and stinky throughout due to Fish. Everywhere its too costly for food .Shree mahaveer
    dhaba at Thekkady ,and Allepy was a life saver.Nothing much to say about spice garden,or the jeep safari,or the tea museum..waste of money..the crockery at thekaddy was so stinky and the food was below average.actually could nt eat due to smell from plates and spoons.Most of time spends in moving from one place to another..if you are planning,just plan for Munnar...rest is waste.you can find better in your own city. At goat mountain In ernakulam..walk in mountain along with clouds was awesome.

    FAQ's of Thekkady

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Are tiger sightings frequent in Periyar National Park?

    Tiger sightings in Periyar are not all that frequent. However, the number of tigers has reached a healthy amount now and it is definitely worth taking a chance. Who knows, you might come face to face with one.

    Is it safe for children to go on the tiger trail?

    It is completely alright for children to be visit Periyar and it is quite safe as long as they are kept in check by their chaperones/parents. However, apart from the controlled area, it is hazardous for anyone to get separated from their group. 

    Is photography of the tigers allowed?

    Photography in case of a tiger sighting is permitted, however, as some sightings can be fleeting, it is a good idea to get as good a look as you can before whipping out the camera.
