I wasn’t much interested in visiting Thekkedi. It was 5 hour long drive from Munnar. We covered the journey during night and it was mostly covered in mist. It started become interesting. The weather was perfect. Everything fresh and new. The main attractions in Tekkadi are
1. Periyar Tiger Reserve
2. Spice Plantations
3. Elephant Bath & Ride
We went onboard for boating in the Periyar Lake which is inside the Periyar Tiger Reserve. A bus took us from the gate and dropped off to the boating location which is about 5 Km away. It was pretty sunny outside when we started boating but then suddenly a commotion started and it began raining heavily. It was like anything with cool breeze of air and rain splashing your face. Clouds crawling through the dense forest on the hills. It was a spectacle. I would say that I was being prejudiced however it turned out to be pretty awesome.
