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.

An unbelievable view of the district of theni can be achieved from here... the winds blows at an astonishing speed of 35kmph.. this place is hence known as the cradle of wind... the wind itself can take u away with it, if you don't resist it a bit..
