The Bungalow is almost a 100 years old and is situated off Thekkady-Munnar State highway-19, 30 kms from Thekkady and 70 kms from Munnar, Kerala. Surrounded by cardamom plantations, this homestay is a perfect More getaway to get closer to nature. A walk in the cardamom plantation with the host,fishing at a nearby pond and bonfire are activities that can be arranged on request.Idukki Dam, Periyar Wildlife reserve, Munnar are some of the tourist attractions.
