One of the East Flowing Rivers Adorning Munnar
Kabani, Bhavani and Pambar are the three rivers which flow to East in Kerala.
Pambar originates from Devikulam, where the memories of Maidhili’s stay in forest remain, gliding through Sahyan’s canyons, fluxing through slightly Thoovanam waterfalls, alluring Chinnar rain shadow forest, then scuds to Tamil Nadu and calmly merges in to Kaveri.
Pambar log house is the accommodation facility arranged by forest department inside Chinnar forest in the bank of Pambar. The greenery of wild, the chillness of the river, roaring of elephants and the music of forest with crickets’ song take us to a sensational world during the halt at the shores of Pambar.
Advanced booking has to be done for accommodation at Pambar log house. After reaching the office of wild life department at 2.00 pm, you have to walk 40 minutes with the guiding tribesmen working in forest department in order to reach Pambar log house. During this journey, well preserved wild animals can be seen. The food for us will be provided by them. Sometimes they may accompany us for fishing in Pambar. It is said that ‘Pambar Koima’ is a fresh water fish seen only in Pambar of Chinnar wild life sanctuary.
Rupees 3000/- is the charge for two persons and 1000/- per head for more. Maximum 6 persons can stay at log house. Booking can be done through Munnar wild life department website.
