They had a lovely shower room. Service was good. The resort is.located quite a distance away from Thekkady. But that can be a boon for some looking to...

Though it is a good 40-minute drive outside of Periyar, you don't want to be anywhere else when you're here. We did go to the Tiger Reserve...

I had tried Imodium and Lomotil to no avail. So I made an appointment for a free consultation with the ayurveda doctor. Her...
