ATTRACTIONS / GAVI
Only few villages in India have earned their place as a must-see locale, and Gavi is one of them. A place of many choices: boating, trekking, camping and night safaris among others, Gavi is equipped to inspire the nature lover in you. A little over 28 kilometers from Thekkady, Gavi has been the center of a celebrated eco-tourism project which undertook a unique intiative to maximize the involvement of the local population in the tourism activities. Today, the project provides them with a livelihood and ensures the pristinity of Gavi's ecosystem.
The roads leading up to the place are blanketed by tea plantations. The plethora of activities that awaits tourists in Gavi is reason enough to find time to visit the place. Gavi will always hold a special place in the hearts of wildlife enthusiasts. The prospect of encountering endangered species including the Nilgiri Tahr and Lion-tailed macaque or even the ever-common elephant is too big an opportunity to pass. Night safaris to neighboring Kullur, Gavi Pullumedu, Kochu Pampa and Pachakanam are conducted with this sole purpose in mind. If boating on the Periyar lake was enthralling, you'll find boating on the Gavi lake all the more enjoyable. Adventure buffs can undertake one of several outstanding treks through the region. As an added bonus, Gavi also has forest camping activities, which is a rarity in protected Indian forests. Gavi gifts spectacular views of ravines and forests below from viewpoints like Valley View. It doesn't matter what your kind of a tourist you are, Gavi's got you covered. We absolutely insist that you not miss out on a chance to visit Gavi during your trip to Thekkady. It's worth every mile of the trip.
