Thekkady in Kerela boasts of a beautiful Periyar Lake on which you can take a boat cruise to observe wild animals and birds esp elephants bathing and drinking in a herd.i have uploaded a picture in which various programmes and treks offered by the forest are given with the price list and duration.you can enter the forest premises by vehicle or cycle away till you  reach the famous Turtle Coffee Shop. you have to park your vehicle  here and then trek for around 1 km till you reach the main office and ticket counter of periyar lake cruises.the walk in the woods is mystifying. loved every moment of it.

Kumili just adjacent to Thekkady boasts of the best spices in Kerela.Mr Cyriac the owner of Pepper County Homestay was kind enough to guide us to a shop in the market place of  Thekkady just 2 kms from his humble home to a great reasonable spice shop called “LORDS” we bought spices which included  nutmeg,pepper,green cardomom,cinnamon,vanilla pods,handmade natural soaps,herbal loofah,coffee beans. we also shopped at “Periyar woods” at Thekkady junction for some souvenirs.the shop keeper gave special mention to buy an artifact called HAPPY FAMILY– which is an elephant with 6 babies  which brings happiness and good luck if placed in a strategic place in your living room for all visitors to see and of course i was not leaving the “HAPPY FAMILY” behind.:-)
