Pullumedu is yet another hidden gem enhancing Idukki’s impressive repertoire, with hills draped in green greeting you on the ascend and the majestic Periyar River accompanying you the entire way. Apart from the natural view, one also gets glimpses of the Sree Ayyappa Temple at Sabarimala and the Makara Jyothi illuminations at the shrine. On site, picnickers and trekkers will get every single campsite and trail that they can imagine, with newer areas coming to light on every visit. The area can only be reached via jeep and the drive alone preps you for a magical journey.
