Amrithamedu in Idukki

Amrithamedu, popularly nicknamed as Kurisumala (Hill of the Cross), is a popular pilgrim centre as well as a trekker's paradise. During Easter, pilgrims climb the 'Stations of the Cross', which would require a pilgrim to cover 14 points, with each point having a cross,symbolising various phases of Jesus Christ's last journey.

One can see tea estates in the distance and the rolling Kokkad Hills on the trek. The higher you trek, the more you are entranced by the beauty on display. Once the climb reaches the ninth cross, one would step on to a plateau and the mist that engulfs you at this place is quite an experience. This is Amrithamedu, the highest point in Kuttikkanam region in Idukki district.
