Thenmala is the first planned eco-tourism destination in India. The eco tourism destination has been divided into three major zones, each with a particular theme – Culture Zone, Leisure Zone and Adventure Zone. A boardwalk in the Leisure Zone leads to the breathtakingly beautiful Thenmala Parappar dam. One of the highest waterfalls in Kerala, Palaruvi is also pretty close to Thenmala and is a popular picnic spot.
