Activities @ Creek In The Wild

Wildlife Safari

Trekking

Trekking is the best option to explore the scenic beauty of Wayanad. Two of the most popular routes for trekking are the Pakshipathalam and Brahmagiri trek organized by Kerala forest department.

 

The Pakshipathalam trek takes you through wild forests, deep caves and thick rock blocks to the height of 1,740 m above sea level. This is an exciting challenge for visitors looking for adventure.

 

The Brahmagiri peak trek takes you through streams and vast verdant spaces before you reach the steep slopes of the Brahmagiri hill. While the trek is challenging, but the view from the peak, will wipe out all memories of the arduous journey.

 

Guests staying at the resort have easy access to the Tholpetty forest in the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary and the Nagarhole National Park -  the two most popular tourism destinations in Wayanad District.

 

Tholpetty sanctuary is connected with the Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary and the wildlife jeep safari at the sanctuary offers opportunities to spot various animal and bird species in their natural habitat. One of the memorable experiences at Tholpetty sanctuary is the night camping and the watch tower situated above the lake. This lake is the primary source of water for the wild animals inhabiting the sanctuary and it is an unforgettable experience to watch nocturnal animals come to drink water.

 

The Nagarhole National Park derives its name from naga, meaning snake and hole, referring to streams. The park is part of the lush Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve with a has rich forest cover that includes numerous small streams, hills, valleys and waterfalls.  Years ago, this park was an exclusive hunting reserve of the kings of the Wodeyar dynasty, the former rulers of Mysore. Today, it boasts of a healthy predator-prey ratio and offers a great opportunity to get a glimpse of various animals

 

 Experienced guides from the forest department accompany visitors on the safari at both the reserves for frequent sightings of wildlife like herds of elephants, gaurs, deer, monkeys, tigers, leopards, bears, many species of reptiles, butterflies, birds including vultures.
