Arippa forest, the road less travelled


Here, the mind dips into an unknown depth of placidity and the silence becomes more silent. It is a shot from Arippa forest, located 52 kilometers northeast of Thiruvananthapuram city along the Thiruvananthapuram- Shenkottah state highway, that we bring you this month. The forest, locally known as Arippa Ammayambalam Pacha, covers an area of 1,000 hectares. With its rich flora and fauna, this lowland evergreen forest is an ornithologist's delight as well.
