    Comfortable and clean

    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.

    Spice Country

    An early start led us to Alleppey where we joined a traditional houseboat to wander through the intricate maze of Kerala backwaters. 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 …

    All Spiced Up

    Pepper may be the king of spices but Cardamon is apparently the queen. We learned a lot of about spices at the Ayurvedic spice garden today, after passing through miles of Cardamon plantations and apparently hidden pepper, coffee and many other special trees and bushes. But there is also a cheat, the spice you use when your cupboard is bare, called Allspice, as the leaf appears to have a bit of everything! The trip ...

    Hunting the wild elephant

    There are 1000 elephants in Periyar Reserve, but they have toying with us, leaving talismans on the grounds around the lodge, leaving places just before we got there. Not having seen any yesterday on boat rides and a hike, today was do or die. A boat ride in the early morning mists was wonderfully scenic, but a bust when it came to elephants. We left the park in search of other adventures when the word came to us (from a park ...

    ... on a scale bigger than I could have ever imagined. We tried to take photos but just couldn't capture the beauty. We both agreed that this was one of if not the most beautiful place we have seen in person. As we got off the bus at about 4:30ish we were, as usual, approached by a driver trying to win our custom. I told him we were staying at Greenview Homestay and thought the was that. He quickly replied "how did you know my ...

    ... as one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in India for wildlife photography, bird watching, elephant herds and tiger watching.

    We have started from Kurangani in the morning and travelled to Thekkady via Cumbam, Kumuli. Once you enter the forest area, you can feel to dip in temperature and green surroundings. This travel has few Kms in the ghat road which has few hair pin bends. After crossing Kumuli which is the TN-KL border, we have ...
