An off-road trip with beautiful sightseens of hills, valleys and wildlife, the jeep safari Thekkady is a unique experience with all these features. Our agent arranged the trip at 5.30 in the morning, the driver came and picked us from the hotel.
At first the trip was through the highway for few kilometers and then across the narrow road with tea plantations on both sides. Finally we reached the off roads where only a 4*4 Jeep can go. We roamed through an area called Sathrum. Luckily we have seen wild elephants and sambar deer at first but they were standing far away from the sights. But the encounter with bison was closer and we got a clear view.
The jeep ride through the snaky roads on the mountains is an unforgettable experience. Sathrum trip mainly consist of 3 meadows (3 view points), where you get a vast view of the hills and valleys which is part of the periyar Wild life sanctuary ( Thekkady). The view from the mounts are excellent with winds, fogs, and the greenery of nature.
