About Periyar Lake Thekkady

The Periyar Lake Thekkady is formed by the construction of the Mulla Periyar dam across the Periyar Lake in 1895.  The lake itself harbors a unique aquatic ecosystem and is one of the most visited places in Idukki, like Munnar the hill station in Kerala. Numerous little islets in the lake are witness to the intricate inherent interrelationship among the terrestrial aquatic and subterranean life forms.
