Bamboo Rafting & Hiking, Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary India, Kerala
This is a dawn to dusk hiking and rafting day through some of the richest forest tracts of Periyar Tiger Reserve, starting with a hike through forests rich in bird life and arboreal animals such as the giant squirrel and the Nilgiri langur. The rafting then lasts for about three hours and includes a stunning panoramic view of the forest-clad hills reflected on the lake, while elephants, gaur and sambar deer can sometimes be seen at the water's edge.
The rest of the adventure is on foot. A forest guard and 4 guides accompany a maximum of 10 on this group adventure. Tea, snacks and packed lunch are served on route. A fantastic walk with lovely views and a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the wildlife of the area.
