From pristine beaches to famed wildlife reserves, Kerala offers its travellers an experience that will completely rejuvenate their mind, body and soul.
Thekkady is home to one of India’s finest wildlife sanctuaries, known for its large elephant population. It is located at an altitude of 900 m in Kerala’s Idukki district, on the border with Tamil Nadu. The area is also known for its rich cardamom plantations, along with those of vanilla, cinnamon, clove, ginger, nutmeg, tea, pepper and coffee. Vandanmedu, one of the world’s largest auction centers for cardamom is located less than 20 km away. It houses as many as 12 of the world’s 20 cardamom auction centers. Apart from these, Thekkady is also blessed with undulating hills, placid lakes and cool aromatic air. There are many opportunities for treks and other nature-related activities. But Thekkady’ s prized possession of course is its wildlife, the primary object of all visitors here.
