The silver cascade that falls as you ride demands your attention. These falls are created as a result of the overflow of water from man-made Kodai Lake and are the ideal place for a long road trip to have a break. A magnificent water sight thrashing down right into the ground below from 180 feet and mesmerizing one and all with its sheer power and elegance. One can even take a bath in the falls' water showers. As the falls site is slightly off the main road, you can easily relax, take photos, etc, and enjoy some cool drinks during the tourist season on site. The exquisite mouth-watering local fruits that are available to fruit sellers can also be enjoyed.
This is the first view on the way to Kodaikanal, a nice view to say "Kodai is near" Snacks are available and you can spend some time here enjoying the view. The view is too perfect for a waterfall, but no swimming is permitted. It's a photogenic place. Look out for the monkeys here, since there are many monkeys around here. There is no separate parking place there The best time to visit is morning. Only go out and watch and hang out and relax and have fun before you get the very best.
Thekkady is a small area in Kerala's Idukki district and is renowned for the numerous tourist attractions in the region. One of the main tourist attractions in Thekkady is the Periyar National Park and the Periyar Tiger Reserve. With a total area of over 770 square kilometers, of which about 360 square kilometers are evergreen forest, Periyar National Park offers a lot of opportunities for discovery, nature walking, and wildlife viewing. The Temple of Mangala Devi Kannagi, the Cardamom Hills, the waterfalls of Cellar Kovil, and many others. Thekkady is adjacent to the Western Ghats, and there are therefore many picturesque areas around it that can be visited directly to bask in the hills' beauty. It also offers great possibilities through its many misty hills for treks and hikes. The Periyar River flows through the park, and a reservoir is formed at one end of it by the Mullaperiyar Dam. This area, therefore also provides excellent panoramic views.
The closest airport to Thekkadi is Madurai Airport, which is 114 km away. Madurai is primarily a regional airport and is connected to other cities in India, such as Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai, Coimbatore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Goa, and to international destinations such as Colombo and Dubai. The larger international airport near Thekkady is 145 km from Cochin International Airport.
Buses from Madurai in Tamil Nadu are very well connected to Thekkady and its nearest town, Kumily, as the area is close to the border. The buses are run from here by the publicly-owned TNSTC or the State Transport Corporation of Tamil Nadu. These buses are mainly non-AC buses and take about 4 to 5 hours from Madurai to reach Thekkady.As it is a nature park, there are no local bus services in Periyar. However, the city of Kumily and Thekkady Junction has many buses to Munnar, Kottayam, and other towns within the region operated by the KSRTC or Kerala State Road Transport Corporation and can be used for shorter to slightly longer trips to smaller towns within the district.
There are no railway stations in either Kumily or Thekkady. Kottayam train station, which has several trains on the Trivandrum-Ernakulum line, is the closest train station. Thus, not only in Kerala but all over India, it can be easily reached from many major cities. Thekkady is approximately 110 km east of this station, and this distance will have to be covered by either car or bus.
Although the people of Thekkady organize and celebrate a good number of fairs and festivals, the most important festivals are Onam, which are celebrated with great joy and fervor throughout the state. In Thekkady, a competition known as Poollalam means flower bed is organized during Onam, and here is also celebrated the traditional feast of Kerala called as Sadya.
Thekkady is situated in a tropical area, so the climate here is mild all year round. But September to March is the best time to visit the venue. For sightseeing and spotting migratory birds along the lakeside, this time is indeed ideal. The temperature can vary up to 36 degrees C, which is very hot in the summers, particularly in the months of March to May, and is not considered suitable for exploring the city. The months from October to February are very cool during the winters and are the best months to schedule a trip to Thekkady. This is the moment when the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold and is therefore perfect for sightseeing and other city activities. There are also a number of fairs organized in the city during this period that add to its charm and make the city lively and vibrant. The monsoon season begins, resulting in heavy rainfall that can impede the city's enjoyment.
