The Old Bhoothathankettu, attracted you to this place by its mystifying stories, mythical and historical. You could trek through the banks of the river. This one-kilometer nature walks along with green plants and the voice of the river never leaves you for moments refresh your spirit in your trek. Near the destination, your guide may show you a small cave, which is believed to be used by the monsters, while they were busy building that dam across the river. A glimpse of the miraculous Old Bhoothathankettu is enough to remind you of the work of the poor monsters who were fooled by the rooster. Big boulders boldly challenge the mighty Periyar, which eddies around for a moment. Spend an hour sitting on the banks enjoying the majestic beauty of Periyar, or you can even take a dip, where you find the river shallow and less demonic. 42 kms from Airport NB: There is no boating.
