Our Core Activities

Unique Experience Offerings

Bird Watching

We offer short Kerala birding tours within the Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary at Thattekkad and the hill country at Munnar. This trip is ideal for those looking for a quick birding trip in Kerala in South India. Most of the Western Ghats endemic bird species van be sighted on this trip.

Trips are normally arranged as a separate activity for guests coming for Ayurveda and Yoga retreats. But we also undertake birding expeditions alone.

Kayaking

We offer guide assisted Kayaking expeditions.
This is an excellent opportunity for wildlife lovers, adventure seekers, offbeat travellers and bird watching enthusiasts. Kayaking at Thattekkad takes you on a kayaking route along the famous Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, down the Periyar River towards the lowland forests of Thattekkad.

Explore the bio-diversity within these forests and kayaking to the upstream villages to get a first hand glimpse of authentic Kerala village life and farming.
