A trail for chasing the birds, Salim Ali Bird Trail is a self-guided trekking programme for the daily visitors. A walk through the interior of the woods will be a great experience and it also help you in spotting and identifying those birds, which otherwise for the untrained eyes of a traveller, remain invisible. This trail includes a visit to the Butterfly garden and the interpretation centre. You may also have a talk with the bird monitoring cell here to know about the kinds of birds at Thattekkad.
Visitors should call the respective eco-tourism office (phone number provided) for details on entry and exit time at each tourism site.
