Ponmudi Tourism

Nestled in the laps of rolling hills of the Western Ghats, filled with tea-plantations, lush green hills and valleys, waterfalls and streams, this quaint little town draws connoisseurs of mountain life.

You can explore trekking and mountain-climbing on Agasthayarkoodam, the highest peak in the region at 1868 ft. above the sea level. This is a town in the Thiruvananthpuram district and is located 61km from the main city. To get the best of the two worlds, explore the wilderness of the Golden Valley and laze around along the fresh water springs and Kallari River. Don't forget to take a walk through the deer park and the Ponmudi crest.
