About Periyar

We went to Thekkady in hope of finding elephants. It was a short hike but hiking is certainly not for the faint hearted, it's hard work getting your lazy city-familiarised body on the go, especially for old IT professionals, who are sitting under one screen all day long.I was hiking, with a very unfit 56 year-old software professional,my father and a 51-year old teacher, my mother and a 50 odd-year old guide.(unusual for hiking)The trail took us through an enchanting forest covered with plantation till our knee heights. You could hear the birds chirping, you could observe the blossoming flowers, the monkeys going about their business but no sign of elephants.(We did see elephant poop though)The guide kept our hopes up still, he took us near water sources but we still had no success.We were in the last phases now, yet we could see no elephant and you might be expecting in the manner I am writing that we would have seen the elephant but that didn't prove to be the case on this occasion.We were a little disappointed but our disappointment was nothing compared to the marvellous experience we had in this gem of a place in Kerala.
