Combine nature with history and heritage

The fairy tale of Tramway is that it was set up in 1905 under the visionary of

Maharaja of Cochin Sri. Rama Varma to transport Cochin teak from Parambikulam

to Chalakkudy and then to export it to the rest of the World from Cochin Harbour.

The money from this tramway was used to equip Cochin into a modern port,

Wellington Island, Roads, Bridges etc… Can you believe it… the great Tramway

was stopped in 1953. Now only the remnants in the form of rails, bridges, wagons,

etc. are there. To give a fitting tribute to the centenary of this Cochin State Forest
