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

I liked the grandness of this tree. this tree is witness to the centuries of activities of civilizations on this planet earth. It stands like a symbol of immortality upon this earth. It defies death's dictum. A symbol of generosity, patience, and immortal growth.

This huge tree as the board says is a very old tree and we had not seen a teak tree as big as this. We were taken here as part of the organised safari by the forest dept in their bus.
