Centered on an artificial lake, Thekkady provides a sanctuary to a diverse set of animals and plant species.
Step out of the city life by going to Persian Paradise Elephant Ride and Periyar Tiger Reserve. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Angadipetty -Kerala Ayurveda Museum and The Periyar Interpretation Centre. Change things up with these side-trips from Thekkady: Ramakkal (in Idukki) and Pampa Ganapathy Temple (in Sabarimala). Spend the 18th (Thu) exploring nature at Periyar National Park. And it doesn't end there: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, look for all kinds of wild species at Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, take in nature's colorful creations at Abraham's Spice Garden, and pause for some serene contemplation at Our Lady of Lourde's Roman Catholic Latin Church.

The first Indian city to achieve a 100 percent literacy rate among its citizens, Kottayam has as much of a reputation for its educational standards as for its massive rubber industry.
On the 20th (Sat), view the masterpieces at Clay Art Cafe and then identify plant and animal life at Vagamon. Keep things going the next day: take in the exciting artwork at Mozart Art Gallery, stroll through Kumarakom Beach, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Vaikom Mahadeva Temple.
