Kannimara Teak is said to be the world's largest Teak Tree at an astounding girth of 6.48m and 48.75 m high. The jungle safari makes a quick stop at this location for tourists to visit.

It was truly an amazing experience to see the 460+ years old Kannimara TEAK and to understand the beliefs of tribals. It is believed that when this teak was once tried to cut, red colored liquid similar to blood came out in large volumes and then tribals decided not to cut it and from then it is worshiped as Kannimara...

It is big tree. It has great history, but all the places are dried.To see this you have to stay in Parambikkulam or to take safari. Cost of the safari is 170 INR per head. Cab will start if there is a minimum of 18 people.

Giant teak, inside the forest. Could spot a lot of wildlife on the way. Need to travel through forest tracks to reach this place. Could travel in your own vehicle if you have booked your stay in the reserve.

Kannimara translated in tamil is 'virgin"'I was told a story by the local tour guide on how the oldest Kannimara aParmbikulam was to be felled down by the British and how it shed blood as tears, That fasinated me. The sheer girth and height of one of the oldest Kannimara was awsome
