Moistness of soil and the grace of forest on this stripe of forest of the Western Ghats is never enough for the travelers. A glimpse of wildlife in its natural abode, a walk through the dense forest, and listening to the whispering sounds of bamboo forests – Vazhachal has many more to mesmerize you. Getting permission from the forest authorities and exploring for the Royal Indian Elephants or for the four endangered Hornbill Species, Vazhachal forests are adventurous and natural.
NB: To enter the Forest Division, one has to obtain permit from the forest check post at Vazhachal. Animal encounters are not uncommon in the forest and it is advised to avoid provoking acts and speeding of vehicles.
Riding through the forest on a motorbike during the dry weathers is a wonderful experience, giving you the chance to appreciate the pristine nature. The forest road that starts from the check post at Vazachal passes through a few water bodies, plenty of turns, and covers 44 kilometers before it reaches a small hill town – Malakkappara.
