Our two night stay were very comfortable. The hotel set high in the western Ghat mountains close to the Periyar National Park was set back from the bustle of the town. Our room, with large balcony overlooked the forest and we were surprised by a visit of a troop of black monkeys in the nearby trees one afternoon. Grounds were clean and well laid out but we felt the pool was a little cool to swim. Food was buffet style and very good quality. However the hotel ran out of beers during our stay and had to go out to get more. Didn't plan for a British tour.

One of the other groups got lucky and did see one in the distance. Just being in the beautiful forest and listening to the birdsong was enough ...
... he smiles and points view for photo. Hmmm not sure if he knows why tourists go there but the view was hidden under a sea of grey mist, but I oblige and take some photos of the mist. I smile and we head back down the landslide of a hill. My last morning here and I decide to go for a trip on the lake. I booked my ticket the day before as apparently they sell out quickly. I am told although my boat leaves at 7:30 I should be there at 6:30, I am told there will be ...
