The Pampadum Shola National Park may be the smallest national park in the state but is thriving with a mind-boggling range of flora and fauna. Spread over a mere 12 square kilometres, Pampadum Shola National Park sees a high number of visitors. The name ‘Pampadum Shola’ literally means ‘the forest where the snake dances’. Imagine hiking and stopping for a picnic in the midst of a forest covered with mist. That is the Pampadum Shola National Park for you. 

The evergreen trees and water sources serve as a haven for a variety of birds and animals. Regular sightings of elephants, gaurs, leopards, wild boars, sambar deer, tigers and common langurs enthrall visitors. The elusive Nilgiri Marten, a small endemic carnivore listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, is found here. Get an insider’s view of the woods by hiking to Vattavada. A walk through the forest's stunted canopy of trees nestled in the blue mountains is truly unlike any other.
