A sprawling cover of rainforest situated about 18 km from Nilambur, Nedumkayam is a basket full of captivating views. The woods hold a rustic feel about them with old wooden house hidden within established under the British rule. The forest area is also home to the oldest teak plantation in the world, dating back to 1840's and spreading across a gigantic area of 2.3 hectares. Studded with luscious thick green forest cover, amazingly clear water streams and rare species of flora and fauna, it provides you with a surreal experience. Bison, tigers, macaques, deer, wild cats are the prominent animals that reside in these forests. Elephants are a major feature of the jungle area and an elephant taming camp is also situated here.
The wooden rest house built in the forest premises during the British colonial times is still in use, offering a fantastic panoramic view of grazing grounds of wild elephants and deer. Trekking and hiking trails are a huge crowd attractor. Nedumkayam rainforest is a part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. The dense forests of the region make up the New Amarambalam Reserved Forest and are home to almost all of the mammals in the Western Ghats and more than 200 species of birds, hence classifying it as an Important Bird Area. Although prior permission is needed by the Indian Forest Service to enter the forest premises, it is well worth the hassle!
