HIGHLIGHTS

Dr. Salim Ali, Father of Indian Ornithology and Founder of Thattekad Bird Sanctuary in 1983. The Bird Sanctuary is 65 Kms away from Cochin. Its one of the best places to find the endemic species of Western Ghats. Thattekkad literally means flat forest, and the region is an evergreen low-land forest located between the branches of the Periyar River, the longest river in Kerala. 300+ birds are found in the sanctuary , we will be capturing them in close range with the help of hides and we will do birding safaris inside and around the sanctuary for the endemic and migratory birds.
