Clouds walk

Clouds walk is a must do activity when you are in Thekkady. It is a long guided trek for about 3-4 hrs up the mountains and forests.
The quest of a mountain trekker is for the freedom of the hills, to be at home in the high wilderness with no barriers that he cannot pass, no danger he cannot avoid with due caution and proper knowledge. This quest gives him/her true bliss. He develops real love for the mountain regions and appreciation of their grandeur.

Trekking leads to a closer interest in plants, trees, birds and animals, indeed in all forms of natural study. It inculcates the virtue of sacrifice, the value of physical exertion, sometimes to the limit of endurance, and above all, the spirit of comradeship. A sense of adventure adds excitement to the trek.

Trekking is an art which any healthy and young minded person can learn at any age. But it is best to start early in life to get the most out of it. Trekking does not demand great strength or immense wealth but merely your desire and willingness. A sound trekker is mindful of his own minimum needs; he must give up certain comforts and avoid burdening himself with the non-essentials.

By participating in the trek, you feel the lifestyle and the landscape of the tribal and non tribal communities. From the vantage point, you can have a look at grasslands, evergreen, deciduous and riverine forest and the expanses of irrigated arid land across the border where the nectar from the river Periyar provides the breath of life. Hotel Tigers Roare provides you an excellent opportunity to enjoy trekking if you choose to stay with us. Visit
