The Nilambur forests are also known for their unique dense rain forests, tribal settlements, waterfalls and the world's first Teak Museum. Nedumkayam, the hidden gem of Nilambur is a treasure trove located in the Western Ghats. Rich with flora and fauna, the Chaliar River that flows through the heart of Nedumkayam serves as the lifeline of the wildlife here. The place is also known for the vast teak plantations. The moment you enter Nedumkayam Rainforest, you feel like the humdrum of daily life slowly melting away and the virgin scent of the forest taking over your senses.
