The concept of ‘Incredible India’ may have been heavily publicized. However, with a vast variety of geographical terrain and several climate zones across its lands, India is home to some of the most attractive destinations across the world.
One of such spots across the country is Thekkady. Situated in Idukki, Kerala, it is a town famous for its proximity to the Periyar National Sanctuary. Thekkady’s terrain is replete with acres of plantations and it has pleasant weather all year round. Adding to its charm are the sightseeing spots around this place. The waterfalls in Chellarkovil, for instance, are worth a visit. It is also famed as a source point for spices, laden with trade stores and markets where one can find the finest of tea, coffee, pepper or cardamom.
But the most prominent spot here is the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, one of the largest wildlife reserves in South India. It was declared a Tiger reserve in 1978 and is the only Indian sanctuary where visitors can sight animals in their natural habitat…from a boat! One can spot tigers, deer and most popularly, the herds of wild elephants by the lake.
So if the prospect of a visit to Thekkady excites you, you need look no further than Club Mahindra’s Tusker Trails. The resort is located in the midst of the sanctuary, built in the traditional ‘machan’ style. Its bungalows and décor are true to nature and the surrounding forests, thereby making Tusker Trails an ideal place for you to return to, after a long jungle safari or a night in the markets.
The resort is a spacious expanse of elegant accommodation and amenities to cater to your every need. If your kids are looking for something to do, Tusker Trails’ Fun Zone and Creative Corner provides both places and activities to keep them occupied and happy.
For the sightseeing enthusiasts, Tusker Trails organizes trips to spots such as the Chellarkovil falls or the Ramakalmedu Hilltop and trekking trips around Vandiperiyar.
Should the idea of staying active appeal to you, the resort’s in-house personnel organizes dance and painting workshops, or even adventure sports such as kayaking. One can even hit a few shots or throw a few hoops in the thoroughly equipped sports area within Tusker Trails’ premises.
And that’s not all! To help you really let your hair down after a tiring day out, Tusker Trails has evening programmes every day, complete with karaoke, music shows and even ethnic performances to let you sit back and relax into the night.
