Little Known Destinations > Pooyamkutty Forests in Kerala
Posted by Jithin Prem on October 16, 2016

PooyamKutty is a less known destination blessed with scenic hill ranges, small waterfalls and abundant wildlife. I visited Pooyamkutty with my friends back in 2015 when we heard a few stories about the tribes who lives in harmony with the elephants. The forest is one of the main migration route for elephants here. Encounter with elephants are part of their lives now, but both of them live in harmony. Bamboo trees constitute a massive part of the vegetation which is a favorite diet of the elephants.

The Pooyamkutty forest is separated by Pooyamkutty River and you need to cross the river to get into the forest. We had to trek nearly 10 kms through the forest to get to the tribal village. Since the village is in the middle of the jungle, encounters with wildlife are part of their daily life. Major wildlife here includes leopards,macaques, spotted deer, wild boars, civets etc.

It was a one day trip, we reached there early by 9:00 AM in the morning and came out of the forest by 5:00 PM. It would be better to go early and come back before it is dawn, because it’s dangerous to walk through the jungle when it is dark.

Posted by Pratap Singh on August 21, 2013

The Baroli Temples Complex, also known as the Badoli temples, is located in Baroli village in Rawatbhata taluk in Kota district in Rajasthan, India.
They are built in the Pratihara style of temple architecture dated to the tenth century A.D.

Parajhar is a nearby waterfall. The underground water flowing in caves has carved statues and figures on the stones in the cave. Many people have died due to accidents near the waterfall. It is near to village called Parajhar gaon. This place is also known for historic cave-temple of Lord Shiv. During Mahashivratri a large festival is organised here. water-fall and green surrounding is the attraction for peoples.
