If you have just a day at Thekkady and coming from Munnar, you must depart Munnar at 08 AM and complete boating at the earliest. One must arrive at least by 16:00 to see the glimpses of Ramakkal. Visit Ramakkal rock first and then visit the Kuravan mount to watch the sunset and night view of Tamil Nadu cities. If... More

A beautiful, unnoticed place in Idukki. The Kuravan and Kurathi statue is so beautiful to see. It is surely an enjoyable one.

Lord Ram's rock (RAMAKKAL), Wind farm, Spice farm, rabbit farm and above all Ramakkal Top station, these all are truly amazing and still unexplored by many and possess all the originality of real village life. The temperature is absolutely cool with fog in the morning. A stay here is worth for visiting Thekkady so that we can have better weather... More

It is a hidden gem in Kerala as there is not many foreign trourists other than few people from Kerala knows about it. The ancient trek routes are quite challenging and the hidden tribal trails in the sandalwood forest is a treat as you trekk towards the top station. At least 2 nights is rquired to cover all the areas... More
