I will be in Kerala in the coming weeks and have read mixed reports about the Periyar Wildlife Sancutary near Thekkady. I have heard it referred to as a kind of Disneyland, with too many tourists, tacky shops, terrible restaurants and a ripoff. I would be interested in doing a camping overnight and experiencing the nature but don't want it to be a bad experience. Any thoughts or suggestions of how to experience it at its best (what tour operator? accomodation? etc.). Many thanks.
