  • The sight from the top is splendid......totally worth the tedious climb.......Was lucky enough to experience the sight of the fog covering the hills......Meesapulimalayil manju peyyunnath kand kaanilla, but kurishumalayil manju moodunnath kandittund......
  • Kurisumala Ashram is a Cistercian Monastery in Syro-Malankara Catholic Church in the Sahya Mountains in Kerala, India. Kurisu is the translation of the word cross into Malayalam, the language of Kerala; mala means mountain; ashram means monastery.
  • Getting to the top is not an easy task. But its worthy. You will feel the magic of nature at the top. The church ambience is awesome. You have to climb around 1.2 kms to reach the church. There is enough parking area at the starting point.
  • Nice place to visit.After passing several holy crosses, you'll reach the Ashram.A place filled with fresh air.A parking ground is available as well.Best time to visit, May-July. Time: Morning -6am to 9am. P.S: the path is full of rocks,and at times you'll have to climb, moist rocks.The climb will be a good test for your fitness.
  • Christian pilgrimage center near Vagamon Kerala.It is a shrine atop a hiil. Do go in groups only and carry drinking water for it is hillclimbing one mile. Visit nearby St Alphonso shrine at Bharanaganam. Erratupetta and Pala are the nearby Towns. Ask around the whereabouts route etc of Kurishumala at Erratupetta.
