Illikkal Kallu, Kottayam

#1 of 8 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.

  • Nice place and scenic view from the top view point. We can't go beyond the view point because of safety issue. It would be better if they make way to go near the rock. Have good parking place and 1km trek is required to reach the top or you can go via Jeep. Entry ticket is rs15, and for Jeep you have to pay an additional cost of rs30. Also, it better not to go during the month of Jan till May, as climate here will be hot during daytime and there won't be any scenic views.
  • An incredibly beautiful location is made all the more fantastic with the presence of a huge rock, looking like designed one but not, and some smaller rocks. The locals are emotionally connected to it and that is the reason for a much more personified name "Illikkan". The drive to the top is incredibly amazing because of the landscape and scenic beauty. There is a rather good road leading to it. Earlier adventurous people used to climb to the top of the rock but now it is prohibited because of some fatal accidents.
  • Excellent place for a one day picnic.. Nice ambience . Evening after 4pm is idle time. We can enjoy a small trekking experience with child breeze and mist.. We can also have evening snacks from small shops and are very homely.
  • God's creation at it's best. I had a great time there... The small tea shop was really nice and the tea I had was just awesome. Government should properly maintain places like this.
  • A place where you can enjoy the nature. You can find 3 mountains there Close by with its really amazing gigantic structure so amazing to see. One real beauty of the mother nature.
