VAZHACHAL FOREST DIVISION

Lush green mountains, rhythmic flowing streams, breathe taking Athirappilly falls, rapids and cascades all along the roads, this enchanting forest beckons you to her pulsing heart. Her fragrance of mulching mix is spirit refreshing, her medley and melody an elixir for your soul.
Vazhachal comes in her full bloom with the onset of monsoon. The entire forest is filled with a new sprout of life. A drizzle to a heavy rain, sometimes blocking your journey is a must to see.
An escape into wilderness during summer is a most/more rewarding experience. The intermittent summer showers and the greenery on both sides- The nature has giveth what the sun would taketh away. Outside is the noon daylight, the powerful rays of summer, but here everything is cool and cosy.
A journey through this forest is surely a revival of your youth. Let the winding roads unwind your thoughts, let it fly to the canopy above, free but protected by the boughs

VANASREE ECO SHOP

“A blend of purity of forest and goodness of people’’

An initiative by the Forest department, these ecoshops was developed to give wings to the dreams of tribes to get a fair share to their hardwork. Here collection, value addition and packing of non-wood forest produce are done by tribal communities and marketed by them under the brand name vanasree. Two ecoshops are established at Athirappilly and Vazhachal to offer you pure forest products and to augment the income of the tribes.
