Ramakkalmedu tourism – Before I get into the topic I’d like to quote what Leonardo DiCaprio said about Ramakkalmedu, “If there is a paradise on Earth, it is here.” This place is not a famous tourist spot unlike other places in Kerala and that’s why this place is such a gem for anyone who’d like to spend some time away from the crowd and tourists.
If you are lazy to read then skip to the end and watch the video on Ramakkalmedu Tourism.

Places to See in Ramakkalmedu :
There are few places that you can see in and around Ramakkalmedu namely :
- Kuravan Kurathi Malai – If you’ve been to the Idukki dam you would have known that the dam is build in-between two big hills. The left one is called Kuravan and the right one is called Kurathi. So here in Ramakkalmedu you find a mention for them where they carved out a big statue for them.
Just next to that place you’ll find a hornbill statue which you can climb up to the top of the statue through steps and have a panoramic view of Ramakkalmedu. You also get to see the TN border as well from the top.
- Windmill farm – Ramakkalmedu receives heavy winds anywhere in India so, it is obvious that they have a farm of windmill here. Don’t forget to carry umbrella as that places rains a lot during monsoon season.
