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

The trekking is easy. The vies are very rewarding. The trek can be made by middle aged people also. This is a perfect family picnic spot. Suggest taking water, food and some blankets to sit on for you and your family. Find a nice spot under a tree or rock and it's going to be a beautiful picnic. There is... More

There are at least 5 attractions in Ramakkal. The first one is the Ramakkal rock, no.2 is the statue on the hill, no.3 is the wind mills, no.4 is the spice and rabbit farms. No.5, but the best, is the top station. You need more time to do the trekking to a very old temple down and then to vineyards.

You need to take a trek through the woods to reach this place and then you will be in Paradise. The Rama rock is another attraction here.

Scenic beauty and stunning views. Good tourist spots like the Windmill farm, The Kurvan Kuruvathi statue and the Rama rock. The bad part is that this place is really remote, if you are on a tour, this place will consume too much time in travel.
