Mattupetty Hill Station ( September – May is the best time to enjoy the Mattupetty hill station)

Mattupetty is famous for a Dam known as Mattupetty Dam located in Munnar in the Idukki District of Kerala. It is about 13 Km from Munnar situated at the height of 1700 meters above the sea level. Mattupetty is surrounded by lush greenery and offers various trekking routes . You can explore various tea plantation and grasslands around the place. Mattupetty dam is an ideal picnic spot and habitat to various beautiful birds. The lush green Kundala tea plantations, grasslands, shola forests and rivulets makes this place more attractive.

Horse riding facilities are also available at this place.

Another attraction in Mattupetty is the Indo – Swiss Livestock Project, very near to the Mattupetty Dam. It is a highly specialized dairy farm, with over 100 varieties of high yielding cattles. Visitors are not allowed to enter all the cattle sheds. The project was established in 1961 by Kerala Livestock Development Board (KLDB). The beautiful grass mounts near the farm offers eye catching sights of great varieties of trees and plants.

Devikulam

Devikulam is a pretty small hill station located at a height of 1800 meters above sea level, about 16 kilometers from Munnar in the Idukki district of Kerala. The Devikulam hill station is famous for its mineral water springs and the beautiful landscape. Devikulam tour offers a perfect opportunity to spend your vacation nestled close in the lap of Mother Nature.

The Devikulam Lake, also known as the Sita Devi Lake, is a spot of unsurpassable scenic beauty. The sparkling crystal clear waters, the tall trees and flowering shrubs on the banks and the twittering songbirds make it an ideal picnic spot. The hill station of Devikulam derives its name from the Devikulam Lake in the vicinity. Devikulam means lake (kulam) of the Goddess (Devi). Legend says that Goddess Sita, consort of Lord Rama took bath in the sparkling waters of this tranquil lake during their stay in the nearby forests. This place has a lot of natural beauty that act as magnet and attracts loads of people who come and visit it every year, and enjoy the serenity and calmness of the lake.
