Mulai Forest

THE ONE-MAN FOREST IN INDIA

MULAI FOREST

Mulai Kathoni or Mulai Forest, a 550 acre man-made forest located at Kokilamukh, a village of Jorhat. Jadav Mulai Payeng, "the forest man of India", who is behind this exceptional work, upgraded a 'chapori' of the river Brahmaputra to this forest. All this effort was made by him after witnessing a sad incident of a dying snake due to lack of vegetation in the area. He single-handedly transformed the entire region which led to the reoccurrence of wildlife here. He was awarded the Padmashri for the same.
