Boating at Thekkady
View wildlife up close from a boat. Watch elephants and deer drink water
The most popular activity that a tourist can enjoy in Thekkady is boating in the Periyar lake. One can see the wild animals along the fringe of the lake foraging, bathing, drinking and resting. It would be a greater fun if one is lucky enough to see the elephants playing with their babies in the lake. This is the only sanctuary in India where you can have the unique experience of viewing wildlife at close quarters from the safety of a boat on the lake.
