Reviewed February 4, 2013

Seethargundu veiwpoint within the Poabsons Estate in Nelliyampathi is probably the most underrated attaraction in Palakkad.This might be because of the never ending negligence of the government authorities to the Nelliyampathi as a whole. Nelliyampathi is just a short drive from Palakkad town and being a hill station roads are really narrow and curvy.Taking buses from Palakkad is also another reliable option but only a very few buses (an early morning bus at 6;30 seemed to be really ideal for me).On reaching there you can hire a jeep or if luck favours some trucks on the way to the Poabsons Estate will offer you a lift which will surely save you some money.On reaching the Poabsons Estate then involves a trek through the beautiful tea and coffee plantations to reach this million dollar viewpoint!!The view is indeed unimaginable with trees,farmlands,rivers,ponds,villages and roads down there thousands of metres below.Its an absolute WOW!!!On the way back you can also go and check out the store at Poabsons Estate for products like organic tea,coffee,honey and so on.In short highly recommended!!!
