Day 1 : -

While passing the through the Reserve Forests , we were lucky to see 3 elephants on the way to Muthanga Wildlife sanctuary .We reached Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary at 1:00 p.m . Since it was not open at that time ,we started further looking for some resort . We travelled another 15 km , to the City "Sultan Bathery" .

We Stayed in Hotel "Issac Regency" .  Then we came back to the Sanctuary at 3:45 p.m . It was heavily crowded .So please be there in time .Somehow we made it to the open jeep safari. I had set my expectation quite high for this sanctuary . It was pathetic . The jeep went very fast and there are hardly any animals seen .At last 1 elephant and its baby were seen . Then we came back to the resort .

DAY 2 :-

We started for Pookot Lake in the morning . Lake is very beautiful . we spent around 30 min at the lake and then started looking for Vythiri Resort .We checked in at 12:15 p.m . The boys showed us the whole resort and its facilities . Its the best nature resort , i have ever seen in my life up till now

I took up 1 tree house and 1 paddi room with a private pool .
# Majour Attractions which makes it is different from any Resort :-

# Natural Pool is the best part of the Resort . I have Chilled my beer in its cold water and then had it sitting inside the water . It was just Amazing .
# Wooden Bridge in between Rooms and Restaurant which is Unique of its kind .

# Its Tree House which is at 65fts high operated by a Manual Lift - the scenery is just Amazing .You will feel as if you are on a tree top in the middle of the Jungle .Just You ....
# 2  Natural Waterfalls running from withing the Resort .

It has a very cooperative Staff .

AMBIENCE : The place is fragnated by a Natural Essense of Kerala Herbs .

FOOD : Food is very good especially the Fried Fish in Lunch . A lot of Variety to choose

Great Destination ..................
Great Food ...................................
And Truly Something Different ................
It's here that you forget rest of the World
