Bhavani River, nestled below the Nilgiri Hills of the Western Ghats, is the second largest river in the State of Tamil Nadu, India. A long perennial river, Bhavani, is a major tributary of the Kaveri River, the longest river in Tamil Nadu. It also flows through the beautiful land of Kerala. Attappady Reserve Forest - a protected area in Palakkad district of Kerala is the scenic spot which Bhavani River flows. The gurgling sound of the river awakes the sleeping minds to be in a rather different green world.
Attappadi, one of the prominent forest regions in Kerala, is well known for the tribal settlements here. The major tribal groups here include Irular, Mudugar and Kurumbar. They own rich culture and tradition that go beyond the Vedic times.
