Thengumarada is a sleepy village in the Nilgiris District on the banks of river Moyar, situated at the foothills of Nilgiris hills and Dhimbam Ghats. The only road that connects Thengumarada is from Bhavanisaagar and then you have to cross river Moyar to reach the village. There are around 1000 families here and the Village gets its irrigation from a nearby check dam. Elephants visit this place regularly. The access to Thengumarada is fantastic and beautiful. On one side of the road (some 4 Kms away) lies Bhavanisaagar dam and on the other side lies the forest. In the morning or evening, wild animals cross this road and go to the dam for water. It makes a beautiful jungle safari to pass through this route. The road is a very tough terrain. It is muddy, dusty, bumpy and rocky. Credits for the route -
