Our culture was rich and need to be preserved, first time i got this feeling through tribal heritage tour. Though completely neglected, this tour is a 100% worth visit. Book through forest department counter in kumily. We had this in our package with Bamboo grove and happen to see one of the best activity in thekkady.
