Details on the area surrounding the property/accommodation
Cardamon Club shares a border with Periyar Tiger Reserve, in Kerala. Periyar is the best-known wildlife sanctuary in south India. Though described as a tiger reserve, Periyar is really famous for its wild elephants, 100-year-old artificial lake and its setting in the beautiful, thickly forested Western Ghats. There are 49 species of mammals, 246 species of birds, 28 species of reptiles, 8 species of amphibians, 22 species of fishes and 112 species of butterflies documented in the park. Periyar is rated as one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in India for wildlife photography, bird watching, elephant herds and tiger spotting. In addition to the wildlife sanctuary there are spice gardens and tea estates nearby that provide tours. About 6 km away from Cardamon Club, Kumily Town offers shopping, restaurants, ayurvedic health centers, banks, and bus transportation to other Indian destinations.

Cardamom Club's location provides a remote and peaceful retreat into nature, it is as cut off from the world as you can get. What is does have is a fabulous, authentic experience of living in the middle of the jungle with hammocks, a tree house, nature trails, and silence punctuated only by melodious songs of birds or the occasional warning calls of monkeys when a carnivore comes visiting. This 16 acre property is the only property with trails to the boundary edge of Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary at the top of the valley ridge getting you as close as possible to the park without entrance fess and providing stunning views of the surrounding region. The promoters of Cardamom Club are keen to offer nature oriented services & maintain an eco friendly atmosphere.

Cardamom Club is truly an amazing gem tucked away in the hills of the Western Ghats. This nature surrounded property gives wary travelers an escape from the boisterous, busy, and unkept India found elsewhere. At Cardamom Club slip away into a different side of India and experience the lush, green, quiet nature, and friendly people of Kerala.
