Periyar - Day 1

Post by david63 » 14 Nov 2014, 12:24

Today we had a four hour drive from Madurai to Periyar through some of the most fertile countryside that I have ever seen. The fields were constantly changing with what was being grown and it would appear that virtually all fruit and vegetables are grown in this region.

Unlike all of the other places that we have stayed this time we are only here for one night as a break in the journey to Cochin which would otherwise take around nine hours.

The area that we are in is called the spice capital of India as it is one of the main areas where virtually all spices are grown – you name it they grow it.

This afternoon our driver took us into the mountains where there were some stunning views of the countryside, and a waterfall.

This evening it has rained, virtually all night, and there has been some serious rain – should have known this with all the crops that they grow.
