Thenmala is home to India's first planned eco-tourism project. It has equal opportunities for fun, adventure, leisure and for learning the significance and necessity of eco-friendly measures for promoting tourism related activities.
Thenmala Ecotourism in Kollam was selected by the World Tourism Organisation as a premier eco-friendly project and is India's first planned Ecotourism destination. In Malayalam "Then" means honey and "Mala" means hillock i.e. honey hills. The honey collected from Thenmala forest area is of good quality and of high medicinal value because of the unique floristic composition of the forests.
The sway bridge here could be an exciting proposition, especially for children. Adding more variety and elegance to the landscape here is the Sculpture Garden, which has Man & Nature as its theme.
