website about Kerala tourism packages, green world holistic village, KeralaGreen Circle is a collection of people from all walks of life, concerned about the environment and ready to work for its protection. It is based at Kothamangalam, the gate-way to the high ranges of Kerala, which is the part of the southern western ghats. Western ghats, which is one of the global hotspots of biodiversity has been under immense anthropogenic pressure, and its conservation is possible only through the commitment of people aware of the threats, and willing to act to save the ghats. The "Green Circle" has been recently registered as a charitable society, in order to carry out the works more effectively and in an organized way. The circle members have chalked out a few ambitions plans for the long term conservation of the environment in and around kothamangalam, as we feel that it is an ideal place to initiate such an environmental education / conservation activity. Kothamangalam is 50Km away from Cochin, on the way to Munnar and the famous Eravikulam national park - the Tahr country. It also has the Botthathankettu forest, the Salim Ali Bird sanctuary and the Pooyamkutty-Idamalayaar valley forest on its north-east sides. so, we believe the ripples that we make here transform as waves of conservation in the area up and down, north and south.
