hiking and bikingprospects with its many hill stations of Munnar, Palakkad, Wagamon and Idukki. The magic of lush Kerala hill stations fragrant with scents of cardamom and cloves, offer ideal wooded trails for hiking tours. Winding through the cardamom plantations, trekking through the rubber and coffee farms, and hiking through the misty mountain forests leaves body and mind in awe of the raw untamed Kerala greens.
The green forests of the Kerala hill stations are natural habitats for exotic orchids, colorful flowering shrubs, dense greens, tropical trees and wild animals like the tiger, monkeys, leopards, elephants, wild dogs and hundreds of birds.
A walk up the hill trails allows the tourists to feel dry leaves crackling underfoot and listen to the intermingling of insect sounds and birdcalls. The deep blue mountains, generally overcast by a milky mist with clear blue skies in the background, offer idyllic panorama to the greedy senses of the tourists.
Munnar is particularly famous for its tea plantations, churches and old British mansions. Tourists hike or mountain bike through the jungles of Periyar Sanctuary to experience a personal touch of mother nature whilst feeding their senses on glimpses of rare wildlife, birds and insects. From Periyar, they take on the mountain trails on bicycles to Munnar, which takes them at least two days to reach.
