Far from the madding crowds...
Gavi, a picturesque land is one of the off-the-track destinations
ideal for a wilderness retreat replete with trekking, birding, canoeing
and facilities for boarding.
There are hills and valleys, tropical forests, sprawling grasslands,
sholas, cascading waterfalls and cardamom plantations. Endangered
species including the elephant, Nilgiri tahr, lion-tailed macaque
are often sighted at the outskirts of Gavi.
There are two programmes run by the Kerala Forest Development Corporation
and Eco Development Committees, one where three families could stay
in the ecolodge at Gavi and the other where 15 persons can go for
a day’s visit of the area.
Hosted and accompanied by trained local people, the visitors can
go for trekking and bird watching in the many trails around, paddle
in still waters to cool off or perhaps settle down for watching
sunset in this oasis of peace and tranquility. Native vegetarian
food and snacks will be provided to the visitors.
