DAYS 5-7 | Periyar National Park
Highlights: Private safari; Visit working spice plantations
You’ll then head deeper into the wild, to Thekkady, a district within the incredible Periyar National Park, where you’ll see natural spices and might even spot some exotic wildlife. Staying at Spice Village will make you feel like you’re hunkering down with a traditional tribe, but of course with all the mod cons and comfort you could need. Activities offered at the hotel are equally in tune with local tradition, and include outdoor nature interpretations, handmade paper making and sari demonstrations.
