Parunthumpara

 

Parunthumpara or 'Eagle Rock’ is situated near Peermedu in Idukki district, is a place famed for its pristine natural beauty. A trekker's delight offering a bird's eye view of an endless stretch of green forests and the landscape, Parunthumpara is a favourite of off-beat travellers. And if the sky is clear, the visitors can also get a view of the Sabarimala forests from here.

Parunthumpara, literally meaning eagle's rock, is 6 km away from Peermedu-the famous plantation town in Kerala, on the National Highway 220. Parunthumpara can also be accessible through two main roads in the district; from Nedumbassery-Munnar road and the Kumarakom-Thekkady road.  It is among the finest spots to visit when one is in the Thekkady area.
