This is inside the main gate of Thattekad Bird Sanctuary away from any traffic noise, and situated in quiet and peaceful atmosphere.
Vinod is a most experienced, English-speaking, Naturalist and Interpreter. He knows Thattekad and its wild life intimately having lived there all his life and can take you own trek from the house, pointing out and identifying birds, and introducing you other wildlife also. He is also familiar with other wild life sanctuaries in Kerala and can arrange to take you there and guide you through the forest.
The Bird Sanctuary is situated on the Old Munnar Road about 12 kilometers north east of the large town of Kothamangalam. Approaching from either west (Kochi/Ernakulam) or the east (Munnar) by bus, you need to get off at this town, at the private Bus stand, from where there is a frequent local bus service. The conductor will know to tell you when you reach your stop ,which is right beside the main gate. If you telephone Vinod once you are on the bus, he will do the arrangements to pick you.
