As you explore the evergreen forests of Western Ghats, you'll find yourself surrounded by a rich and diverse ecosystem teeming with wildlife. The Western Ghats are home to a wide range of species, including many that are endangered, making this area a true treasure trove for nature lovers and conservationists alike. More>>>
Anakkayam ( Elephant's Lake )
Anakkayam, which means "Elephant pit" in Malayalam, is a cluster of lakes that have formed naturally amidst the concrete jungle. During summer, wild animals, including elephants, visit these lakes in search of water to drink and bathe in. The sight of these animals in the midst of the jungle is a breathtakingly beautiful scenery. The pleasant climate and the grandeur of the jungle make Anakkayam an immensely attractive destination.
