Walk through lush green valleys amid perennial springs, crystal-clear waterfalls and misty atmosphere. Soak in the fresh air and feel refreshed and younger. Welcome to Kodikuthimala, a hill station at a height of 522 m above sea level in Malappuram district.
Known as the ‘Ooty of Malappuram’, the hilly area is a top-rated weekend destination in north Kerala. The British hoisted their flag on this hilltop during a survey and hence the place got its name. Located 10 km from Perinthalmanna town, Kodikuthimala is the highest point in the Amminikandan range of hills. Apart from the ever-flowing springs and waterfalls, a watchtower and a suicide point are the main attractions at the hill station.
Trekking to the hilltop is a little bit challenging for us due to the topography of the hilly terrain. The best time to visit is between September and May as the weather is pleasant here.
As we reach the top, we are likely to experience different phases of Nature. Either a blanket of mist with a light drizzle may make us shiver or a happy sunshine will energize us. For a spectacular visual treat, we can climb up a watchtower and enjoy the panoramic view of the pristine surroundings.
Come to Kodikuthimala and soak yourself in its scintillating sights!
