Nelliyampathy hills

Nelliyampathy is a very popular hill station in Palakkad district. Tourists ply up the hairpin curves to this stunning tourist destination in large number every day to savour the panoramic vistas they enjoy at various viewpoints of Nelliyampathy which is around 1500 metre above sea level.  And if there is an adventurer in you, Nelliyampathy, you’d find soon, is a launching pad to other destinations deep into the woods. The long and arduous trek to places like Manpara and Kambamala are all rewarding experiences.

On the way to the destination, the first to catch your attention is the Pothundy dam at the foot of Nelliyampathy hills. Some of you who have come with your family won’t hurry, in climbing the hill hastily, for there are enough facilities to spend a whole day off at the dam site.
