1. Edakkal Caves
It’s awesome view everywhere if you like the stone-age stuff, caves and beautiful view of western ghat.
Good. Hard to climb if you are going with small kids. Some steps in-between not proper. You require to park at the last place and walk for 1 km to up. Then you need to climb 350 steps to up. The steps to go up passes through caves. It’s awesome view everywhere if you like the stone-age stuff, caves and beautiful view of western ghat.

4. Lakkidi View Point
This is a good view point to see the beauty of the Thamaraserry churam and its hair pin bends . Although monkeys are causing little trouble , we will be able to manage by avoiding food items from their view.
5. Soochippara Falls (Sentinel Rock Waterfall)
Soochipara falls is a beautiful falls. A km long well paved walkway from the ticket counter leads one to the falls. It is possible to take bath in the falls but rocks are very very slippery and so one has to be careful. Otherwise one can take bath in the puddle of water collecting at the bottom. Taking bath in the falls was an exhilarating experience. The way is a climbing up process but not steep except an initial portion. The entry fee is Rs.59/- and car parking charges are Rs.36/-. Plastics are not allowed. Water bottle is put with sticker and has to be brought back.
Taking bath in the falls was an exhilarating experience.

This is another place to escape the city’s noise to enjoy the nature. First you will be moving to the island in a bamboo raft which has a seating capacity of around 25-30. But the distance just around 75 meters. Then when you go inside the island you can have a walk for around a km surrounded by the noise of insects and birds. At the end you will see a stream with lesser depth in which you can have a lot of fun!
