It is located in the eastern side of Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala. The region has a good forest cover and is marked as a haven for birds and animals. This forest area is part of theAgasthyavanamBiologicalPark. The growing conditions support the existence of large variety of medicinal plants. The scientists visit Kottoor forest areas frequently in search of natural herbals for making medicines.

We had an elephant safari. The timings for the Elephant safari are from11 a.m.to5 p.m.The safari is of twenty minutes duration at Rs.100 per person.
