Thekkady : After a stay at Munnar we moved on to Thekkady and stayed at Spice Village of CGH Earth group of Hotels. A great place to spend time in cottages and the natural surroundings.   http://www.cghearth.com/spice_village/spice_village_reception.htm


Thekkady is situated in Kerala, close to the Kerala - Tamil Nadu border town - Kumily. The sanctuary is famous for its dense evergreen, semi-evergreen, moist deciduous forests and savanna grass lands. It is home to herds of elephants, sambar, tigers, gaur, lion-tailed Macaques and Nilgiri Langurs. The Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary is spread across 777 km² (300 sq. miles), of which 360 km² (139 sq. miles) is thick evergreen forest. The Wild Life Sanctuary was declared a Tiger Reserve in 1978. The splendid artificial lake formed by the Mullaiperiyar Dam across the Periyar River adds to the charm of the park. The greatest attraction of Periyar are the herds of wild elephants that come down to play in the lake.  Thekkady is considered a heaven for natural spices such as black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon and clove.

Munnar : Pictures from a nursery in Munnar, Kundala lake.

Munnar is one of the most popular hill-resort towns in Kerala in southern India. The name Munnar is believed to be derived from the Malayalam/Tamil words Munu (three) and aaru (river), referring to the town's strategic location at the confluence of the Muthirappuzha, Nallathanni and Kundaly rivers.

Set at an altitude of 6000 ft in Idukki district, Munnar was the favored summer resort of the erstwhile British rulers in the colonial days. Unending expanse of tea plantations - pristine valleys and mountains- exotic species of flora and fauna in its wild sanctuaries and forests - aroma of spice scented cool air

Across Zanskar Trek - Wanla to Padum : The Across Zanskar trek used to begin at Lamayuru and end at Padum. The 2nd half of the trek was from Padum to Darcha. The entire trek used to take around 3 weeks. However due to road construction at both ends the trek has been shortened. It now begins at Phanjila and ends at Pidmo instead of Padum reducing three days from the first half of the trek. Due to time constraints I was not able to do the 2nd half from Padum to Darcha. However, the road is relentlessly penetrating Zanskar and quite soon I am sure it will cover the full route and vehicles and motor bikes will be careering down the road all the way to Manali from Lamayuru. When this happens a way of life for the Zanskaris will be lost forever.

Mandu-Jahaz Mahal : <h1>Mandu: Jahaz Mahal</h1>
<p>A truly extraordinary complex of buildings, now ravaged by an earthquake. Between two large water bodies, the entire complex seems to float between water, land and sky. What we see now is a fraction of what once was: three storeys high and another three storeys underground.</p>

Mandu-Jami Masjid : <h1>Mandu: Jami Masjid</h1>
<p>The elegant Jami Masjid at Mandu. More of a temple of justice than of prayer, it had galleries for ladies and a jury box. Hoshang Shah's tomb, just behind the Masjid, is an extraordinary white-marble mausoleum that predates the Taj and is, apparently, its inspiration.</p>
