    I have one question.

    In that site in ecotourism there is agatsyavanam in trivendrum district,is it same as agatsyamalai/kodam.
    Can you give precise link for booking agatsyakodam trekking 2020 or it will open on 11 am8-1- 2020.reply soon.

    1. Kochi2Ladakh

      Hi Dr. Kuntal,

      We would recommend you to sign up for a user account at Government eService Website(in the Homepage, click the “Register Yourself” under “CITIZEN Section”) which is the second option mentioned for booking tickets online.

      Also, we are yet to see an active link in “Forest Department Website” or “Govt. eService online” website, hoping they will be visible on the booking date, but we are yet to confirm on this.

      Also, we would recommend you to sign up for a user account at Kerala Forest Ecotourism Website< to be on the safe zone even though “Agasthyakoodam Trekking” is not listed in the Kerala Forest Department ecotourism website.

      For any additional information, please feel free to contact Kerala Forest Department via the Toll Free Number: 1800 425 4733 or the Wildlife Warden, Thiruvananthapuram at +91 471 2360762

      Hi Narayan,

      By checking the previous year statistics(https://kochi2ladakh.com/trip/agasthyakoodam-trekking-agasthyakoodam-online-booking-2020-details/) Agasthyakoodam Trekking is generally open till the 1st/2nd week of March.
