The Periyar National Wildlife Park is in Thekkady and about 100km from Munnar. To get there we had to take a bus to Kumily. We were feeling confident having experienced a bus ride already. When we arrived at the bus station we were told that there were no buses to Kumily today as the morning buses had not arrived.

... some boating on the lake and breakfast, lunch, tea and coffee. It was a bit of a splurge at 3200 rupees for the 2 of us (£43).
The next morning it was an early start as we had to meet the guide outside our hotel at 5am. Nobody should ever be awake at this time unless you're still up drinking! It was raining as we jumped in the jeep held together with velcro with an autralian girl and an american girl. Both nice girls and would be our ...
