Paithalmala - Reviews From Travellers
What travellers say about Paithalmala
We went on a rainy day so the viewpoints and the trail were completely covered in mist, with views opening up only for few minutes in between. The hike is a bit long, about an hour one side, through a narrow trail through forest, laden with elephant dungs. But unlike many other hikes in the area, this trail is relatively well mainted and not that difficult. When you visit, try to reach before 3pm, the forest officers could close the entry anytime after 3. Also there are blood sucking leeches so take precautions. #kerala
Scenic roads, cold, and breathtaking views. Paithalmala was a quick getaway and well worth the visit.
