to go for birding in Thattekad...
Day 3: We start the day with a 90 minute shuttle bus ride to reach the scenic stretch along the canal route to Thattekad. The first ride begins amongst the beautiful enclosures of lush green landscape, with the chirpy birdlife giving you company, as you pedal along the canal. And this smooth road soon leads to our next destination - The Hornbill Camp. Providing your day's stay with the authenticity of an eco-adventure experience, this spot is an ideal comfort zone amidst the wilderness of Thattekad. Those of you who are bird lovers will enjoy the sight of a variety of species of birds, trailing alongside the Periyar River. You can even choose to be a little more extravagant and pamper yourself in the luxury of the Swiss Camps. Distance cycled: 40 kms / 25 miles
