Boat safari

Our tourist centre at Thekkady offers two hour boating trips at the artificial lake formed near the Periyar Wildlife sanctuary. The rides are arranged by the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC). One can see herds of elephants grazing near the edges of the shoreline. Deer, sambar, gaur and wild boars can be seen flocking around the place at regular intervals. A majority of the wildlife activity in the area can be viewed during the summer months of March and April. Darters, egrets and kingfishers can be seen flocking around the withered trees that rise out of the lake. It is a surreal experience that is highly recommended if you are in the area.
