Experiences at Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club, Thekkady

You are spoiled for choice in Thekkady !!

Choose from an evening of vivid Kerala culture, to wildlife adventure and bird watching.Many visitors come to the destination to try and spot the elusive Tiger and to watch the Asian elephant in all its glory but few know that Periyar Sanctuary and Thekkady is an Ornithologist's and Lepidopterist's dream hideaway.

Watch Malabar grey hornbills and raucous Racket tailed drongos from the indulgence of your porch , better still trek in our estate and try and spot the threatened Malabar pied hornbill (Anthracoceros coronatus) or larger Great pied hornbill (Buceros bicornis) with its magnificent casque and almost pterodactyl style of flight.

Highly recommended is a morning of languid bamboo rafting or a visit to the Elephant camp.To those who prefer something less adventurous a visit to a Tea Estate and Factory established in 1941 or an amble through a spice plantation could be the perfect evening out.

Thekkady has something for every lover of nature.
