Thenmala Ecotourism

Thenmala- A Unique Ecological Destination

Since Thenmala has been developed to be one of the eco-tourism destinations in Kerala. This place offers the suitable sustainable tourism management strategies. It has been developed well and continue being implemented, so as to conserve and maintain the uniqueness of this ecological destination.

One of the plans for Themala eco-tourism is its Shenduruney Wildlife Sanctuary. It is supposed to function as the main piece of the place. The periphery would actually host different eco-tourism activities and designed to absorb a number of tourists for this ‘soft’ eco-tourism. Such activities actually include mountain biking, nature trails, biking, musical dancing fountain and amphitheatre.

There is also an interpretive center in the eco- tourism of Thenmala. It simply includes the information as well as programs on the environmental education. There are no permanent structures being constructed in the forest. The accommodations has been also developed outside the forest as well as the sanctuary, as managed by the private enterprises around.
