Thekkady is 170 km from Cochin and it takes approximately 5 hours to get there. For most package tours, we go to Thekkady after Munnar, which is 110km away or from Alleppey, which is about 140km away. The route is a combination of hills and normal roads. Thekkady is famous for the wildlife sanctuary found here. There are boating facilities in Thekkady, where the boat will take you through the Wildlife Sanctuary through Periyar Lake. One can see wild animals during this boat ride, but it must be very quiet. The Mullapperiyar Dam can also be seen during this boat ride. Please note that the Mullapperiyar dam and the Periyar wildlife sanctuary can only be seen during this navigation and can not be accessed by road.
