Illikkal Kallu, Kottayam

4.4
#1 of 10 in Nature in Kottayam District
Three hills, each rising to 4000 feet and above, together form the huge hill. each of the hill has a peculiar shape.

one resemble a mushroom and hence kudakallu (umberlla shaped rock).

neelakoduveli, a medicinal herb baths the hillside in blue is found here.

it has also supernatural powers to increase wealth and ensure a rich harvest.

the second hill has a small hunch on the side and is koonukallu (hunch back rock) and a half feet wide bridge across this rock (3rd rock) is called a narakapalam (a bridge to hell). the sunset form this rock is really a sensational view.

  • It is good place to visit. You will get a great view after the climb . Better to visit in winter. There is a parking slot at the bottom and will get a jeep service and there is a small trekking need to get into the destination . It’s better to do not cross the barriers.
  • Superb place to visit. Definitely worth visiting here. The views are really mind-blowing. To reach here sometimes cars will not be allowed to go to the top as there is limited parking is available, if though it will be little hard to climb up the hill, but still its worth. Best time to visit is evening 4-6pm. Or else morning, but personally i prefer evening.
