Lying in the Western Ghats, Chellarkovil in Idukki district is a breathtaking tourist destination for any traveller who wants to get away from the pressures of life. At an altitude of 1200 meters, the village provides you with a stunning panoramic view of the blue mountains, deep valleys, and a beautiful waterfall.
Chellarkovil is a trip back through time. All the hustle and bustle of the tourist town, Thekkady, which is quite near, is gone. Silent is this path that leads to the village save for the insistent call of a bird. The road is bordered with fences mostly made of shoe flower plants. Beyond them, you could see a few houses where slow and serene lives go with little haste.
You’d wonder even as you walk what gem of a place could this road at the end be keeping for the traveller. From somewhere a breeze wafts in carrying a nip that only mountains could have touched and blessed with.
The place is located on Kerala - Tamilnadu border and is about 16 kms away from Kumily Town near Munnar.
