Bamboo Rafting is a dawn to dusk range hiking and rafting through some of the richest forest tracts of Periyar Tiger Reserve (Thekkady). Starting at 8 am from the boat landing, a mosaic of habitats will be traversed before the party gets into rafts made of bamboos. The forests are rich in bird life and arboreal animals like Giant Squirrel and Nilgiri Langur. The rafting is for about three hours and one gets a panoramic view of forest-clad hills reflected on the lake. Animals like Elephant, Gaur and Sambar are sighted keeping close to the edges of the lake.
