You will start your rural cycling in Kerala from the busy city of Kochi to the quiet environs of the lowland forests at Thattekkad. As you ride through the countryside, rural Kerala welcomes you through its rice fields, spice plantations and numerous rivulets of the Periyar River. You will arrive at the Hornbill camp located on the banks of the river Periyar. You can also take a walk around the plantation areas that surround the camp or go kayaking through the river in the company of your guide on the first day of your rural cycling in Kerala.
