• The wildest jungle lodge in Thattekkad
Eldho’s Birding Lodge - is nestled deep in a 10-acre plantation. The lodge is for
bird watchers and nature lovers. The envious location of the lodge affords long
walks in the wild country and unexplored territories, the experience of which is
enhanced by some of the most experienced guides.
The rustle of the breeze in the adjoining forests, the call of the birds, and at
night sitting around a camp-fire and listening to the occasional calls of the owls
provides an unforgettable dimension to the ambience.
If you let the lodge know in advance what interests you in the wild - birds, butterflies,
trek in the green jungles, rafting / boating, the lodge will be happy to chalk out
a thrilling holiday just tailor-made for you!
