Everything about this trip screamed awesome....i cant even describe how good it was...

It all started on a late saturday night when me and my cousins were sitting idly watching a movie on my laptop...We had an idea right then...how about a trip tomorrow? and as it was sunday, everyone of us were free... moreover my cousin brother from US who was there for his vacation, always wanted to go someplace cool...

Hence we didnt decide on any destination then and there...rather got up at 4 am and got ready and off we went towards Kumily...we four, our trusty indica v2 and lots of mobile cameras and battery banks...and water and some snacks too...now that i remember it...;)So had breakfast on our way from a ktdc motel and at first we decided on reaching kumily at the earliest as we planned to get on the jungle safari in Gavi...but we couldnt reach there on time and the jungle safari had departed just 10 minutes prior to our arrival at Gavi...So we changed our plans then and there and started off to Thekkady which was quite near...

I remember it as it were yesterday and it was raining like hell that day...man that was one helluva drive...en route to thekkady stopped over at some local attractions on the way and it was really nice one too...felt like we were walking amidst the clouds...Wow...We spent some time there and reached Thekkady and quickly had some nice pizzas from pizza max, thekkady as we were in a mood to have pizza.;)...you know....;)

Then we were again off to pandikuzhy trail which is among the Kerala-Tamil Nadu Border and its a very scenic place...upon reaching the place one can get a panoramic view of Tamil Nadu towns from there...loved the view...spent some time there...did some short trekking...came back and we were again off to Periyar where we did elephant safari...that was the highlight of the trip as it was nothing short of amazing...the ride was good and the elephant was really well tamed and posed for our pix and the mahout took some awesome pix for us...and the elephant blessed us too...made my day...:)

I would definitely recommend an elephant safari for all those who wants to visit Periyar or Thekkady anytime soon as its worth it...And our ride back home was also memorable...sprawling tea plantations+very best of mtv unplugged+windows down+cool air all around+slight drizzling rain+one of the best tea i ever had in my life=what more can i want...

Thats it guys...:)

South India’s most popular wildlife sanctuary, Periyar encompasses 777 sq km and a 26-sq-km artificial lake created by the British in 1895. The vast region is home to bison, sambar, wild boar, langur, 900 to 1000 elephants and 35 to 40 hard-to-spot tigers. Firmly established on both the Indian and foreigner tourist trails, the place can sometimes feel a bit like Disneyland-in-the-Ghats, but its mountain scenery and jungle walks make for an enjoyable visit.

The very sound of the word Thekkady conjures up images of elephants, unending chains of hills and spice-scented plantations. In the Periyar forest of Thekkady is one of the finest wildlife reserves in India and spread across the entire district are picturesque plantations and hill towns that hold great opportunities for treks and mountain walks.

Gavi is an eco-tourist spot in Kerala which has widely become popular after 'Alistair International' the world acclaimed tourism major listed it among the leading eco-tourism centres and one of the must-see places in India. A must visit place for all nature lovers as Gavi is preserved in its natural scenic beauty untainted by the mighty hands of modernity.
