    • One cannot talk about Thekkady without a mention of the scent of spice carried by the very breeze there. One may get a just of it walking the streets or the plantations. Cloves, nutmeg, pepper, cinnamon, and cardamom are a few of the spices cultivated in the region due to its cool climate and altitude.
    • Go boating on the Periyar! It is organised by the Kerala Tourism Department and the Forest Department. Calm and serene, float in bliss as you boat on the endless river.

Or simply take a walk. A visit to canopy shall be incomplete without a walk through the grounds. Walk amongst the woods, revel in its silences and noises, its smooth and rough textures.
