Good morning friends,
Today I am going to show you the scenic beauty of Kerala. It was Sunday and the final day of our vacation. We woke up early in the morning and got ready for a breathtaking, exhilarating journey to the lap of Nelliyampathy Hills located 60 kms from Palakkad. I never imagined that we would be traveling in an autoricshaw all the way uphill. The driver was a very nice man who charged quite a reasonable fare for the trip. We reached another Dam, Pothundi Dam, located at the bottom of Nelliyampathy Hills and Forest Range.
Pothundi Dam is located in the village of Pothundi, Palakkad district, Kerala. It’s one of the oldest dams in India and built in the 19th Century. This dam is very special because core wall is built with a mixture of jaggery and quick lime. ( Wikipedia)
Nelliyampathy Hills and Forest range happens to lie on the Western Ghats. There is a dense forest with wildlife. We saw lots of monkeys. There are elephants also but they come out only at night. There are sprawling tea estates and coffee plantations. I also saw orange orchards and grape vineyards.
In fact, when we reached Seethargandu viewpoint of Nelliyampathy Hills, my mother had a packet of cookies in her hand. A monkey snatched it from her hand. I had a great time trekking through the forest. I have recorded some videos for you to enjoy.
I hope you enjoyed this journey.
