On this trip we bike along a canal bund road amid lush green paddy fields, numerous coconut trees and lonely villages leading to the Edamalayar forests. The Edamalayar forests and the Thattekad Bird Sanctuary are famous for the numerous birds and is along the mighty Periyar river. The birds, the air and the calm breeze lifts you and rejuvenates your body & mind. Spread around an area of 25 sq km, this sanctuary has more than 200 varieties of birds which includes the large falcon, grey jungle fowl, white breasted water hen, hornbill etc. Another attraction is the Bhoothathankettu; a scenic dam site. A myth connected with the origin of this place says that this natural fortification of forests and hills was built by Bhoothams (spirit/ghosts) overnight, hence the name Bhoothathankettu (fort of the spirits).
