Idukki, in southern Indian state of Kerala, is a beautiful hill station in the southern part of the state. A perfect place to unwind and relax in the midst of natural beauty, the place looks even more charming due to the presence of three rivers - Periyar, Thodupuzhayar and Thalayar. Hill stations, wildlife sanctuaries, misty clouds, trekking on the hilly slopes and an existence in the tranquil surroundings- Idukki offers these all to refresh and replenish tourists beyond measure!
Nearby Idukki is Thekkady, a place of profound charm for tourists due to its interminable forests and wildlife. Grampi is another place worth visiting for its high peaks, a long-stretched carpet of lush forest and picturesque charm. The Idukki Arch Dam, only second arch dam in the world, charms for its being amid the Kurathi and Kuravan hills.
Tourist attractions in Idukki include Kumily- a plantation town- and the charming Kuthumkal Waterfalls with cascading waterfalls. If Kuttikanam is visited by tourists for adventure sports - treks, mountain climbing or a walk through the winding paths - and cardamom plantations, then the Observatory Hills invite nature-enthusiast and sky gazers alike. If Pandikuzhi is a photographer's delight for its breathtaking locales, then the Sahyadri Ayurvedic Centre invites aficionados of Ayurvedic treatment.
