(180+ reviews on the web)
Forest Nature / Park
Enjoy pristine nature at Gavi Forest, a hotbed of eco-tourism in India. Blanketed by tea plantation, the area offers great trekking opportunities and outdoor camping in specially built tents. 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. Watch spider flowers or lady shoe flowers and see some of the 250 species of birds here. Put Gavi Forest into our Thekkady itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
