Online PR News – 06-August-2010 – – Nilambur, the land of teak forests and perennial rivers will be the latest name in the eco tourist destinations of Kerala. The special promotion programme to be launched by the Kerala Tourism Department will give a boost to the tourism prospects of Nilambur in the days to come.
The proposed Nilambur tourism promotion project would involve some of the most famous landmarks and landscapes of Nilambur including Chaliyar Mukku, Nedumkayam, Adyanpara waterfalls, Kozhippara waterfalls, Connolly’s Plot, suspension bridge across Chaliyar, old DFO’s bungalow, KFRI teak sub-centre and bioresource plot in addition to the forest divisions of North and South Nilambur
Conolly’s Plot is home to the oldest teak plantation in the world where the biggest planted teak wood, stands. Originally developed way back in the 18th century by the then Malabar Collector H V Conolly, this plantation is still being conserved for research purposes. The suspension bridge that spans 143-metre in length cross Chaliyar river connects the Conolly’s Plot with the main land is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Nilambur
The unexplored jungle pathways along Nedumkayam and Karimpuzha would make excellent trekking trails for adventure tourists and nature enthusiasts. The grave of Dawson, the British forest engineer who constructed the Girdar Bridge and the remnants of the abandoned Elephant Training Camps in the forest area are some of the other interesting sights included in this tourism project.
The District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC) is organizing a tour operators' meet prior to the launch the special destination programme, on August 14 and 15 at Nilambur, which will be attended by hotels, tour operators and tourist guides.
