Peermede – An unspoiled hill station

A blanket of greenery on undulating hills; unending expanse of plantations; pine forests with crisscrossing rivulets and silver waterfalls; sprawling meadows, and a salubrious, quixotic climate -- Mother Nature seems to be have held nothing back when it came to blessing Peermede.

Peermede, also known as Peerumedu,  lies about 915 m above sea level, and is around 35 km from Thekkady on the Kottayam route. This unspoiled and picturesque hill station of the Sahyadri Ranges is a favourite haunt of many tourists to Kerala.
Years back, when the Travancore Rajas discovered this small but strikingly beautiful locality, they fell in love with its velvet greenery, cascading waterfalls and mist-cloaked hilltops. They made Peermede their summer retreat and added to the charm of the place with their palaces, colonial bungalows and so on.
