Pandipathu Ecotourism Spot in Thiruvananthapuram

A natural haven on the Kerala-Tamil Nadu border that is gaining traction among a lot of our visitors lately is Pandipathu. Located in Thiruvananthapuram district, its secluded charm is accentuated by its wild and raw vibe, which helps people instantly, cut out the noise and chaos of urban areas. It comes under the Peppara Wildlife Sanctuary, and is accessible from Bonacaud, another picturesque plantation site.

Seeing its potential, the Forest Department of Kerala set up a 'Visit To Bison Abode' project in the area. This is because of the presence of the Indian Wild Buffalo or the 'Gaur' on the rolling grasslands and hillsides that cover its landscape. The two-day package on offer ideally caters to a group of eight, which should seek permission in advance before proceeding. Members of the forest department will accompany the visitors, guiding and assisting them during the two-day programme. Campfire and trekking programmes also form part of the two-day programme.

There is a registration fee for the two-day programme, which is inclusive of food and accommodation. Permission and details of the programme can be had from the Wildlife Assistant Warden of Peppara Sanctuary and also from the office of the Wildlife Warden at Thiruvananthapuram.
