Discover Toda settlements and the wildlife habitat around Pykara Lake, where you can see how varied plant and animal life flourishes in and around a reservoir of water created to support a hydro-electric power project. Follow the river that flows over series of waterfalls until your reach the last two, with heights of 55 m (180 ft) and 61 m (200 ft). Book a room at a boat house on the lake for that authentic experience and a chance to explore at your own pace.
