Snuggled between the dense woods of Western Ghats, Thenmala is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated in Kollam, Kerala. With winding roads, dotted with rubber and tea plantations, Thenmala boasts of being the first planned ecotourism spot in India. Spread over acres of dense timber trees, the name 'Thenmala' translates to Honey Hill suggesting the supply of high-quality honey from the region. This honey has medicinal properties because of the surrounding floral varieties and is exported in large amounts.
In addition to this, Thenmala is a treasure trove of activities. It has something for everyone, from trekking and recreational rock climbing to rappelling to mountain biking and rope bridging. It has mystical jungle trails for laid-back visitors which offer sweeping views of the neighbouring hills. In case these leisure walks are not appealing enough to your eyes, you can choose to spend a night in one of the gorgeous tree-house retreats. Thenmala is a very huge enchanting natural resort but only better.
