Observe amazing wildlife and go on a night safari to see the endangered Nilgiri ibex, the state animal of Tamil Nadu, and lion-tailed macaque or herds of gaurs and elephants. Stay at top tree huts and take a boat ride at Gavi and Kochupampa lakes or visit a cardamom factory and walk through spice gardens. Watch spider flowers or lady shoe flowers and see some of the 250 species of birds here. To visit Gavi Forest on your trip to Thekkady, use our Thekkady attractions site.
