    Thekkady is pretty cool and fascinating place with cool weather, dazzling winds, good walk through in the jungle, great sightseeing places in and around the town of Kumily & thekkady was awesome. Having a toast with the culture of Kerala was fantastic. It really worths the money to have a pleasant stay in this lovely place. Nice place to visit full of culture.
