If you thought the Kerala experience involved only houseboats, spice plantations and the backwaters think again. An unknown and often unexplored destination in Kerala is Thenmala in Kerala’s Kollam district. India's first planned Ecotourism destination, Thenmala has 10 Ecotourism spots that cover the great hill ranges of Thiruvananthapuram, Pathanamthitta and Kollam districts. If you are a naturist and simply can’t get enough of the great outdoors, a Thenmala Tour must feature on your Kerala itinerary when you stay at a Club Mahindra resort in Kerala.
In Malayalam, ‘Thenmala’ means 'Honey Hill' primarily because some of the best quality honey is produced here. The quality of honey is directly correlated to the amount of greenery and vegetation nearby which allows the bees to harvest nectar, which is the very essence of life. The surrounding dense forest at Thenmala is also known for producing high-quality timber that is in much demand across the country. A Thenmala Tour will take you through the green, beating heart of the forest and allow you to experience Mother Nature in all her glory.
To the south of Thenmala lies Thenmala Dam, which spans the Kallada River. To get there, the Thenmala Tour will take you across an elevated walkway that winds through the thick canopy of trees, home to many native birds. The Thenmala Tour will also include stops at man-made wonders such as the Pathimoonnu Kannara Bridge with 13 arches and natural wonders such as the Palaruvi Waterfalls that cascade into a shimmering pool.
With Club Mahindra, you can witness many such magnificent experiences across 100+ resorts in India and abroad! To know more about the Thenmala Tour experience, read the Club Mahindra member reviews.
It was like our own personal space to relax in the lap of nature at Binsar Valley.
