  • A place inside forest with small water falls and river flowing through rocks. Enjoying the scenic beauty one can walk by the side of the river and beneath the shade of big trees. During summer as the water flow decreases one can easily and safely walk over the rocks and water, under the supervision of guides in uniform. It is a Govt property. Honey, black pepper, cardamom and various other produces from forest are available from Vanasree outlet at the main entrance. Very supportive staff.
