Garuda Tours and Travels Welcomes you to Thekkady

The Periyar Wild Life Sanctuary, one of India's biggest wild life sanctuaries provides us with endless tour opertunities in Thekkady. Garduda Tours and Travels, thekkady welcomes you to this wonderfull land to enjoy your holiday.

The best time to visit Periyar is between October and May. The best chance of watching animals during the hot months of March, April and May, when water gets low and the grass dried out, animals especially elephants come down to the Periyar lake to bath and frolic in the water along with their young ones. Its centre piece, the man-made Periyar Lake at the height of 2000 Ft, covers 26 sq.km. British engineer, Colonel.J.Pennycuick conceived a design to dam the Periyar river which runs through the forests of the western ghats in Kerals. The dam was created in 1895 to divert the water to TamilNadu for irrigation. The Lake is an important source of water for the many wild animals.

The Periyar wildlife sanctuary can be divided into four categories. The open grasslands studded with fire-resistant vegetation and a variety of grasses including elephant grass,which are the common dining hall of herbivores - from barking deer to the elephant; which the most deciduous forest type dominated by trees like teak and Terminalia which shed their leaves seasonally; the semi evergreen forest close to the tropical forests and wet, stream areas and the sholas or tropical evergreen jungle often tigers and king Cobras that are found in the Valleys. This area of dense forest allows only a limited stream of sunlight through and in the moist, dark corridors.

For adventurous people we have special packages included in our tour program, The Periyar Lake Bamboo Rafting, Treaking, Jeep Safari, and Nature walk.
