TravelPod Member ReviewsChrissie's Hotel Thekkady
The hotel is run by Chrissie who came here 10 years ago. Her staff are wonderful, very helpful. The rooms are large. The menu is distinctly European, do not expect to find an assortment of Indian meals. The only problem is wifi is only available in the reception area.

We were up and out the door early for our 5:30 jungle walk when we heard the sad news about the accident. Everyone was talking about the accident.

We visited here the second day, but sadly lost the first half of the day amidst the usual confusion of crowds, miscommunication and unecessary queueing. Luckily we got 2 spots on the smaller of the two boating options, for a trip around the lake which fills a ...
... the pilgrimage they wear black and observe all kinds of rituals, like only eating at home and bathing twice a day. Then they set off on their walk, barefoot usually, although we have seen people with socks or bandages on their feet. There are a lot of textile factories in this area, with the occasional handloom. When we come across large employers, for example the electricity companies, the navy, brick works ...
