Ghats are for south what Mountains are for north. Undoubtedly Kerala is one of the most visited states due to its attraction ranging from the long beaches, backwaters to the western ghats and wildlife sanctuaries. One of such places is Thekkady and Gavi. Thekkady is also called Periyar and sometimes known as Kumily too.
We took a road trip from Chennai to Thekkady and decided to travel at night so as to hit the Hills early morning. We covered distance of 570 Kms, making few stops on the way for dinner and couple of breaks for local tea. Most of the way is pretty much plains with approximate half an hour journey in the hills.
