As me and my girlfriend had just arrived in Kumily, a friendly guy called Ajumal came up to us and offered a room for a very decent price in his Jungle Paradiso, just above his own house, at the edge of the Periyar Tiger Reserve.
The bath room is fully equipped, with a western-style toilet and both hot and cold water. There's a pretty comfy double bed, with the matresses still wrapped in plastic, Indian style. The rooms come with wi-fi for most of the day, although the occasional power cuts might spoil your browsing fun. But trust me, you won't need any internet with the sounds of a wild forest right outside your own balcony, little maki apes peeking at you from the trees.
Ajumal can also arrange several tours that are available in the Reserve. He's a reliable, hard working guy who is willing to make your experience in beautiful Kerala a good one.More
