Thekkady, in Kerala State, is best known for its closeness to one of south India’s main wildlife sanctuaries, Periyar National Park. Visitors hope to sight wild elephants and tigers, as well as other fauna.
My visit purposely coincided with Kerala’s biggest annual Hindu celebration: the 10 day Onam festival. Days and nights were punctuated by music, song and ritual. The streets went wild.
This is my contribution to Tiffin’s A-Z Guidebook, this month starting with the letter ‘T’.
