    About
    Hotel description
    Set against the backdrop of the misty mountains of Kurushumala, the lush meadows of Periyar nearby and the calm village ambience make this a great base to explore the beautiful area of Periyar. The homestay is ideally located less than a kilometer from Kumily town, the spice garden of India and borders the famed forest of Periyar Tiger Reserve.
