TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Elephant Court Thekkady
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.

... PG tips brew.
We stopped off for a late lunch in the town of Thekkady, topped off with a butterscotch ice cream which we’d become rather partial to, and then we headed off again to Pepper County Homestay, our ‘home’ - a bit like a B&B - for the next three nights and our penultimate Indian accommodation (not counting, honest). Another English couple - Sara and ...
... turned out that the sights along the river were so fascinating that the time just flew by. Canoes of all shapes and sizes, traveled the river, mostly with paddle power. One guy moved quite effectively along with just a piece of bamboo for a paddle. Lots of kids were swimming - although I noticed that these were all boys. Lots of women were doing their washing which involved slapping the clothes very ******* a flat ...
... monkeys had fled back to the trees again they were astounded to see more signs of the terrible tiger. Scratches on a tree!
“We must hurry before the Prince encounters the tiger or a person who’s not as nice as the fisherman!” Said Pulleman and he and the other monkeys rushed in the jungle in search.
