Karuvara Trekking- Silent Valley National Park
Silent Valley National Park, Palakkad is probably one of the most magnificent gifts of nature to mankind, a unique preserve of tropical rainforests in all its pristine glory with an almost unbroken ecological history. Silent Valley is closed on all sides with high and continuous ridges and steep escarpments and is the core area of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve.
The river Kunthi descends from the Nilgiri Hills above an altitude of 2000 m and traverses the entire length of the valley finally rushing down to the plains through a deep gorge.
