Munnar - Thekkady

Backwaters of Alleppey,Kumarakom

Munnar is a small town located at 10.09° North and 77.06° East in Idukki district, of the southern state of Kerala in India. The name is most often used to refer to the whole tourist area, of which the town forms a part. Munnar is almost full of tea estates and has thick forest cover. In fact, the entire area is known as the Kannan Devan Hills, from which the famous brand of the Tata's gets its name.

During the British rule of India, Munnar was developed to cultivate tea plants. It is also believed that Munnar was a favourite place for those of the British who were in the know and it is sometimes referred to as the 'Switzerland of India' for its natural surroundings and Old World architecture.

In 2000, the Government of Kerala declared Munnar as a tourist spot. This has helped in attracting more tourists to the place. The unending dominance of the tea plantations and the mountain flower Neelakkurinji that bloom once in 12 years are both synonymous landmarks of Munnar.

Periyar Lake - Thekkady Munnar

Thekkady (Idukki district) is the location of the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, which is an important tourist attraction in Kerala state, India, close to the Kerala -TamilNadu border town Kumily, located about 160 miles from Trivandrum. The sanctuary is famous for its dense evergreen, semi evergreen, moist deciduous forests and savannah grass lands. It is home to herds of elephants, sambar, tigers, gaur, lion-tailed macaques and Nilgiri langurs.

The Periyar Wildlife sanctuary is spread across 777kms, of which 360kms is thick evergreen forest. The Periyar Wild Life Sanctuary was declared a Tiger Reserve in 1978. The splendid artificial lake formed by the Mullaperiyar Dam across the Periyar River adds to the charm of the park. The greatest attraction of Periyar are the herds of wild elephants that come down to play in the lake.

Thekkady has immense possibilities for Adventure Tourism. The Forest Department offers many programs including Periyar Tiger Trail, Nature walk, Bamboo Rafting etc.
