Pambadum Shola National Park

It lies in between the Kanan Devan Hills and the Palani Hills of Tamil Nadu. It was originally notified as Pambadum Shola Reserve No. 55 in 1901, it was declared as National Park in December 2003. The Park is situated at a distance of 36 Kms from Munnar town.

 

 

Kurinjimala Sanctuary

This sanctuary is situated in between Anamudi Shola NP and Pampadum Shola NP and between High Ranges and the Palani Hills. Its settlement processes are not completed. Ecotourism programmes are inside deep forests of Kadavari.

 

 

Shola forests are found in the higher altitude hill regions of the Nilgiris, Kanyakumari district, the Western Ghats and associated ranges in the states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Although generally said to occur above 2000 meters above sea level, shola forests can be found at 1600 meters elevation in many hill ranges (e.g. Biligiriranga Hills). The origin of the shola forest and grassland complex has been the subject of scientific debate. Some early researchers suggested that the floristic composition represents a stable final state or climax vegetation.
