You can go into the forests and walk along the tiger or elephant trails.

You can even cook in the jungle, enjoy a simple meal, sleep in the tent and if lucky, you can certainly spot a tiger.
Trekking will certainly give you a taste of the mysterious forests of Idukki; but try as you might, you cannot crack the mystery… it still eludes you. Trek under a starlit sky… Spot the majestic tiger… Breathe in the fragrant air of the spices… Watch exotic birds...
If you are ready to pit yourself against gravity and push your physical and mental limits, Idukki’s hills, mountains, and cliffs with their rigid climbs and steep slopes present immense opportunities for mountain climbing. It will take you one full day to climb the mountain. The climb can be steep, rough and you will have to suffer through mist obstructing the view.
