Thekkady (Idukki district) is the location of the Periyar National Park, which is an important tourist attraction in the Kerala state of India.
Thekkady is considered a haven for natural spices such as black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, nutmace, ginger, and clove. Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, which is home to many elephants, is one of the prime attractions in Thekkady. Elephant safaris and the boat cruise on the Periyar Lake are great attractions in the wildlife sanctuary. Trekking is yet another activity that you would enjoy the most in Thekkady and Kurisumala is one such great trek.
