The Elivated Life

Spice Village is the essence of a mountain tribal village, re-imagined for the modern independent traveller. A tribute to ancient ways of life. And to one man’s patience and passion.The comforts of a modern hotel exist, but they never intrude. Modern plumbing, comfortable beds and hot showers find their place, but in a setting stripped down to its natural essence.

  • A warm afternoon by the lakeside
  • A gentle current today, through the river has many moods!
  • A denizen of Periyar greets the morning
  • Coursing through the river, enveloped in fog and mist
  • The herd on the move
