    Stop At: Sathram View Point 3, Manjumala, Kerala 685532, India

    Does it vex, when the potholes of the tar roads catch your vehicle in their snare? An unexpected misadventure to throw you off-road and before you grapple it’s the snarling traffic to sideline you! , A day-to-day flustering experience, do you yearn to go on a trail of wilderness, with the sights and sounds of nature alone? An off-roading jeep-ride through the jungles of Sathram Thekkady where you would be at a pace of your own, with the chance of some rare wildlife sightings in the calling…best of all, you will not face blaring honks of racing commuters! Because you will be in the stillness of a jungle, with a rhythm of the wild!

    The 4-hour trail will start at Gavi gate resting place, which you will reach after being picked up from your stay at Thekkady. With early morning, morning and afternoon time slots to choose from, you can pick a timing convenient for you for this trail.  At the meeting point, you will see your gateway to the rugged adventure ahead- a path covered with low-lying tree branches, shrubs and, shrouded in mists too if you choose the early morning slot. So, hold your breath, as the jeep with an expert driver on the wheel, wades through rivers, tall grasses amidst a picturesque landscape of Shola forests, cascading waterfalls, cardamom plantations.

    You will be stopping by at three important viewpoints that will offer beautiful views of the valleys,   and Sabarimala too. Make sure to have enough camera rolls handy to capture these vistas and the wildlife you may spot during your trail. The region is home to some of the endangered species such as the Nilgiris Tahr, the lion-tailed macaque and exotic avifauna as well.

    While you enjoy these visual treats, you will see wisps of clouds, covering the valley, scattering, culminating in the wild beauty of nature. As you head back to Thekkady for breakfast, the trail you leave behind will remind you time and again…of the secrets of the forests.

    Bumpy road from vandiperiyar, mostly full of lemongrass forest ride. Dangerous off road drive, with no roads. One way muddy track created by jeep's of jeep safari. On the way to from kumily, we can see huge view points. On the day of our visit, misty clouds were passing through

    We took a jeep (Mahindra) from near the Periyar reserve and went to Sathram. It was a fantastic drive. It may not be for everybody. It shakes your body to the core and at places it's really dusty. But the views are amazing. I really appreciate the skills of those drivers as they
