Hi, I am visiting Kerala in mid August and currently plan to over Alleppey, munnar and thekkady in 5 days. After reading periyar reviews I have second thoughts on thekkady. I was wanting to do bamboo rafting.
What is a better option, should I drop thekkady and cover Kodai or Trivandrum. Not sure if poovar islands are open in August?
How will Periyar be in August and also if Bamboo rafting is operational in rains? Reading about the leeches I'm not very keen on the idea of jungle or nature walk in Periyar. Is the any other option to reach the lake.
