This is truely awful. In 2020 animals should not be kept in cages. To see two majestic peacocks in a cage was bad enough, but then to see a monkey alone in a small cage was heartbreaking. He held on to the bars of his prison looking forlorn & helpless. Why?

Love the place. Hot and humid, just as the birds love it. We saw over 130 species of birds. Its a bird watchers paradise. The place is clean, little garbage near the towns, but the forests are clean. Forests where you can walk on foot is bliss. I have never seen trees that were as tall as they were in Thattekkad. The highlight of the birding trip was the Srilankan Frogmouth, the Wood Owl and the Bay Owl. If you are a birder, this is the place to be.

Nature at it's best

Best place to enjoy the tropical evergreen forests.Treat for birdwatchers especially on the months of September to March. Birds like Malabar grey hornbill, ceylon frogmouth and lots of migratory birds can be found. You should need the help of a guide if you are into bird photography. Otherwise it is a cool place for family outings.. The butterfly Park is also well maintained..

The place is situated on the outskirts of Kothamangalam. It always has a cool atmosphere as the place is on the banks of Periyar river. I haven't seen many birds there though. But the place was great. Boating is another attraction nearby the bird sanctuary.

Bhoothathankettu - Thattekad
Oct. 2016 • Family
The Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary, covering an area of barely 25 km2, and located about 12 km from Kothamangalam (Kerala state, India), was the first bird sanctuary in Kerala. Salim Ali, one of the best known ornithologist described this sanctuary as the richest bird habitat on peninsular India.[1] Thattekkad literally means flat forest, and the region is an evergreen low-land forest located between the branches of Periyar River, the longest river in Kerala.

Bhoothathankettu is a dam and tourist spot in Kerala, India. It is situated outside the village of Pindimana, about 10 km away from the town of Kothamangalam and 50 km away from the main city of Kochi. The original natural dam has been supplemented by a modern dam impounding the Bhoothathankettu Reservoir (Thattekad Reservoir). During the Malayatoor pilgrim season, travelers use the roads through the forest

Total Waste of Time
Apr. 2017 • Family
Don't go there if you are outside that area, nothing to see there. You can see, 1 monkey, one crocodile, one king cobra,few fishes, two tortoises., That's all....For 40rs per head fee. Also don't have tea or any eatables from the santuary cafeteria the taste of tea is smoky ..... they says there is butterfly garden.....But it is a bush ...Not maintaining it ..... Wasting our tax money.....
