Trekking in Chinnar was supposed to be the highlight of our trip to India for my teenage son and myself. After two flights (10 hours in total) and a 5 hour drive from Fort kochi we were tired but excited.

Animal Sightings is pretty sure if you are about to travel in the Early morning hours. It would be really adventurous if you could make it alone. An awesome treat from the nature. No Plastic Save nature

To spend one night inside the jungle, it was really thrilling. U hear the dears and all other wild animals making sounds the whole night. Sleeping in that atmosphere is really an experience for a life time.

We went here in the month of April before the rains had arrived in Kerala.
