Watch wild life from a trawler. Dec 28, 2010
Thekkady in Kerala is approachable from Ernakulam and from Madurai,Dindigul and Cumbum.Cochin and Madurai are the nearest airports both more than 150 kms from Thekkady.Thekkady has a dam which happens to be in the fringe of the famous silent valley and Periyar wild life sanctuary.It has been promoted by the government as a wild life tourist attraction.Wild life lovers are taken in a trawl boat around the lake or dam where they are sure to spot deers,water hogs and elephants apart from sight a few waterbirds.Early morning trips are the best suited and so be sure to check into one of the hotels at Thekkady the day before. It is always a 24 hr check out fee so relax and enjoy the boat ride and animal sightings.
