Observe amazing wildlife and go on a night safari to see the endangered Nilgiri ibex, the state animal of Tamil Nadu, and lion-tailed macaque or herds of gaurs and elephants. Stay at top tree huts and take a boat ride at Gavi and Kochupampa lakes or visit a cardamom factory and walk through spice gardens.

Where to stay in Thekkady

The main place to stay in Thekkady remains the town of Kumily. With a range of accommodations to suit the needs of safari-goers, most visitors choose not to look any farther than this gateway to the national park. An abundance of refined resorts, eco-lodges, and budget hostels provide the main competition in town, along with a number of rental apartments and guesthouses. You'll also find options along the road that leads south into the national park. You'll need to book well in advance to secure a room in these hotels.
