    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.

The endless beautiful countryside of rice fields and coconut trees viewed from a different angle was very peaceful and relaxing. We cruised across Lake Vembanad which was like a millpond passing traditional boat …

    The main god is Aiyanar, who is seen everywhere in Tamil Nadu astride a horse protecting small villages from harm. One of the other gods which has just been created is ...

We’re shown a chikos fruit, which is a bit like a kiwi and great for diabetes, and also a jack fruit and a huge cocoa pod.

    ... to contend with, though "leech socks" would be provided. On top of this, when I asked if we would see a lot of wildlife, I was told that we might not even see a bird. Of course, I signed up for the walk. When else would I be able to trek in an Indian jungle?
