The View is great from the other side of the "Kuruvan Kurathi" statues, its a kind of trek however when one reaches there, its really windy, strong gusty winds. The view is mindblowing as one can see many towns in tamil nadu from here. However there are no good restaurants around. There' one small cool bar near the kuravan kurathi... More

The view of Tamil Nadu from der was awesome. It provides a panoramic view of Tamil Nadu villages and towns. Rolling green hills and the fresh mountain air make Ramakalmedu and enchanting retreat. The hilltop also offers a panoramic view of Tamil Nadu towns of Cumbum, Theni, Kombe, Thevaram, Uthamapalayam, Bodinaykannor and Vaiga. The sight is even wonderful at dusk... More

Nice place to visit . Unfortunately we went there during peak season. too much crowd all around. Kuravan-Kurathi statue there is good. No good restaurants nearby. If you have time, climb the hill next to the one where the statues are there. Farms in Tamilnadu are visible from there. good view. good climate. perfect place to relax.

Cars and bike can go until the top of this hill and is a beautiful place for photography. Other hill needs a bit of trek to reach the... More

Beautiful landscape and very quiet area, you should definitely go there for a bol of fresh air. very few European tourists, it s a great place to go if you want to enjoy Kerala's beauty without the tourist crowds.

There are two ideal trekking spots at Ramakkal and we explored both with the help of Wind Haven resort's staff. The best one was the Top station trekking to experince the majestic view of the neghobouring state and experiencing some incredible winds. The trekk route was filled with sandalwoods and some trails of ancient tribal habitat. the second one was... More
