People call this forest as silent valley in the meaning of a forest without the noise of crickets. But due to the invasion of human the nature slightly changes there. But the center of the forest is still in utter silence. The forest journey through silent valley is restricted to 14 kilometers. You can see lion tailed monkeys (lion-tailed macaque) during this journey, and occasionally black monkeys and elephant also come to to the scene. You can travel till the shore of Kunthi river. It is said that about 50% of the lion tailed monkeys remaining on earth that is getting extinct, is in Silent Valley. Almost 315 kinds of creatures like monkeys, black monkeys, tiger, Cheetah, Nilgiri thar (varayaadu), Malabar cevet (pulliverugu), wild goat, wild cat, wild dog, mountain squirrel, palm civet etc. has been found in this area. About 200 kinds of birds, 50 kinds of snakes, 25 kinds of frogs, more than 100 kinds of butterflies and about 255 insects are also inhabit in this forest.
There is sufficient moisture and low temperature to cool the monsoon clouds in this evergreen Rain forest and we get stabilized water supply throughout the year. The secret of this moisture is the vaporized water emerging is spread in the surrounding and never goes out as the this forest is enveloped from all sides with lofty ridges & steep cliffs. Which makes easy condensation of water vapour, thereby causing rains even in summer in this valley.
