Bird watching is an activity we promote exclusively at Oland plantation. The resort borders the Nilgiris biosphere which is home to over 250 species of birds and animals who are often seen wandering in the plantation. Moreover the organic agriculture we promote, protects and conserve landscapes in and around paving the way for a thriving bird life.
