If there is one place where you could find the ecstasy of a roller coaster ride in a peaceful setting of natural beauty, it is at Ramakkal ! My friend from Rajasthan and I (from central Kerala) visited Ramakkal in June, 2015. We had planned to spend only a day at Ramakkal and then move to Munnar, but I must... More

I left with my family to a place called Ramakkalmedu in Idukki district of kerala in the month of June 2015. We stayed at Punarjani resorts which is an excellent place to stay, with a nice restaurant and calm serene atmosphere. We enjoyed staying in that place and wanted to extend our stay there. Since I had to come to... More

You can visit the place on the way to Thekkady from Munnar. You need to walk through the steep paths guiding to the mountain. From Ramakkalmedu you can view long stretch of mountains, cultivation lands etc. From Munnar tke diversion from Nedumknadum and from Thekkady take diversion from Puttady.

If one is lucky enough to be here on a windy day, then you would not want to come back, but if it is not windy , it is just an ordinary view point. I have been to Ramakkal, 3 times and I was lucky only once, although the wind was good enough to topple me that time. It is... More

This place offers a beautiful view point. What most of the people don't know is that there are two view points here. One is easily accessible by road while the other one is sort of hidden. The first view point has a statue which is reportedly the tallest in Kerala. Regarding the second view point, there is a small trek... More

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.

Ramakkal is an historic place. This place receives powerful wind throughout the year. Because of it you can see the windmills installed here. I visited the "kuravan-kurathi" statue on top of hill. 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

It's a good hill with two statues. Has good wind & weather. No other major attractions. Need not go especially to visit this place. No major restaurants or other facilities around.
