Trip from Manali to Ponmudi

General Information About Ponmudi

Ponmudi is a hill station situated about 61 km away from Thiruvananthapuram in the state of Kerala, on the Western Ghats along the Arabian Sea. Located at an altitude of 1000 m, it is one of the highest hill stations in Thiruvananthapuram.

Popularly called Golden Peak, Ponmudi is surrounded by scenic hills, spice plantations, tea estates, natural springs and winding streams. Ponmudi was founded by Rishi Parshuram, a prominent Indian mythological figure.

 Though a quaint place, it has a turbulent history. This land has been ruled by the Ays, Venads and Varmas, and was invaded by the Cholas and Mughals.

Ponmudi tourism picks up during August and September when the Aaranmula Temple Festival and Aaranmula Boat Race are held. This hill station is also the gateway to Varkala, an important pilgrimage site where the 2000-year-old Janardanswamy Temple is located.

The best time to visit the destination is from August to September and November to March.
