Salim Ali, one of the best known ornithologists, described this sanctuary as the richest bird habitat on peninsular India. Thattekkad literally means flat forest, and the region is an evergreen low-land forest located between the branches of the Periyar River, the longest river in Kerala.Put Thattekad Bird Sanctuary and other Thattekad attractions into our Thattekad day trip site, and watch your holiday take shape.
