The air scented with pine cones, the rich silence of Nature and the spectacle of dancing butterflies are just a few of the magical elements in these enchanted woods.
Nestled in the slopes of Nilgiris, the Pine Tree Forest is a grove of orderly growing pine trees that are several hundreds of years old. These ancient woods are home to a wide variety of fauna, ranging from fluttering butterflies that delight the air to wild goats that roam the woods. Wander with your beloved through these woods obscured in white blanket of mist or enjoy a leisurely picnic with family, Pine Tree Forest promises a fairy-tale-like experience to all visitors.
One of the key attractions of the woods that lures visitors is the picturesque landscape that the Pine Tree Forest offers as a backdrop for photography and video shooting. Tourists visit the woods to capture and immortalise important events in their life against the scenery made popular by countless movies. Another feature of Pine Tree Forest is an opportunity it gives you to test your horse-riding skills. Riding on a horse along the slopes of the hill with wind in your hair is guaranteed to give you a shot of thrill and adventure. The Pine Tree Forest has camping facilities also. The woods overlooking the majestic view of the Nilgiris make for an ideal location to set a camp with your family or friends, to watch the mist rolling on and off the slopes and to gaze at the stars through the pinewoods at night.
