Rajakkad is a wonderful place in which to while away the hours reading, listening to tropical birds and doing as little as possible. Thanks to the pleasant climate all year round there’s a number of excursions on offer for those who are more active. Accompanied by the estate guide it’s possible to visit the nearby coffee plantations; enjoy a walk along the river through the rocky gorges and relax in the surrounding waterfalls and quiet pools. Picnics can also be arranged in a variety of locations. The area is home to over 200 migratory and indigenous birds species so its perfect for bird enthusiasts. For those who are more interested in local culture, the surrounding villages are lively and engaging and generally come to life in the coolness of the late afternoon. Just chat to the staff on arrival and they will happily arrange these for you.
