Boating or Bamboo Rafting | Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club

Boating or Bamboo Rafting


With the gentle sound of the river beneath you and a chance to breathe in the fresh air, a boat ride on the Periyar Lake is a must. The view as you skim past is spectacular: you might even catch elephants bathing with their young ones or if lucky a tiger lapping up some of the crystal clear water.

Or else Go bamboo rafting across a river and through the Periyar Lake. Watch the amazing waterbirds from low slung rafts, as you let your fingers run through the water. Leave the raft for guided short easy treks to spot wild gaur, deer and herds of elephants from a safe distance. If this experience is not relaxing enough then…opt for the full day of Bamboo rafting!!
