a premier place with tremendous tourist importance
in the Kerala map is at a safe distance of only
4 km. from Kumily. The world famous Periyar Wild
Life Sanctuary and Tiger Reserves are at Thekkady.
This is spread over an area of 777 sq.kms. and
surrounded by an artificial lake of 2 sq.kms.,
the Periyar Lake.
this placid lake provides a rare excitement of
watching herds of wild elephants and other rare
species of animals in close quarters. Such a cruise
either at sunrise or sunset will certainly be
a fascinating experience.
magnificent Idukki Arch Dam, set against densely
wooded hills and valleys studded with rushing
streams, is only 65 km. away. This dam is surrounded
by the absolute wilderness of Idukki Wild Life
Sanctuary. Peerumedu, Munnar, Sabarimala etc.
are other places around with great tourist importance.
