Craggy mountains, dense forests, and green hummocks and hillocks make up the landscape of Idukki- the largest district in Kerala, which covers nearly 13% of the state’s total area. The dams on the Periyar River, numerous trekking trails, waterfalls and several viewpoints make Idukki the perfect place for an exciting holiday. Much sought after for its wildlife treasures, tea plantations and a repository of rich spices, Idukki mesmerizes you with its beauty and discreet wilderness. Idukki owes its fertile soil to the three main rivers of the region - Periyar, Thalayar, Thodupuzhayar and their tributaries. The River Pamba also has it origin here. The wildlife here is similar to that of Thekkady. One can see wildlife in abundance near the Idukki Arch Dam. The Lake on the three sides of the sanctuary offers a panoramic view to the tourists.
