The tree is inside the Wildlife Sanctuary and is huge. It is shown around during their safari trip. Normally the staff allows us to get down and take a few pictures.

It is the largest teak in the world. It is situated in the Parambikulam tiger reserve. It is accessible to public with prior permission from the forest department. It is having a circumference of about 6-7 people holding hands around the tree.
