Thenmala Ecotourism" has been conceived as a first planned ecotourism destination in India . World Tourism Organisation selected Thenmala as one of the words best eco-friendly projects.

This is an example of unique system to popularize tree planting. The predictions forecasted for a man are based on the Nakshthra (star or the constellation in which one's Moon was placed at ones birth. The entire Zodiac comprises of 360 degrees. Therefore, there are 27 Nakshthras(star) or constellations in the Zodiac.

Each of these Nakshthra is associated with a tree. These trees are of medicinal, social, aesthetic or economic value. There is a belief that it will bring good fortunes if one plants one's own tree (pertaining to his star) in his home. In this proposed programme a nursery of these 27 trees are established. Visitors are encouraged to buy and plant the same. Definitely people will see that these plants survive once they purchase it. That way ecotourism contributes to the greening and ultimately protecting the nature.
