Pothamedu Viewpoint - Review

From green tea plantation to coffee and cardamom plantation, go on a jaunt across Pothamedu Viewpoint. Experience the culture of the tea gardens by visiting the plantation. Watch big sky full of clouds caress the mountain tops. Chat with the local people and appreciate their simple way of life. Smell the air, rich with fragrances of coffee and cardamom. Walk through the green fields, the rolling hills and lush mountain side. This is a must see if you are on vacation in Munnar.

This is a small village with very little population. Because of its altitude, you can clearly see the Idukki Arch Dam when visibility is clear. Pothamedu sits comfortable on a high hill only 6 Km away from Munnar town. It is located in Idukki district of Kerala. Being a major hub of Munnar, it attracts a lot of tourists throughout the year. Pothamedu view point at the top of the Pothamedu Mountain gives you a panoramic view of the entire surroundings. The climate is very cool and the mountain air so refreshing and enticing, you will want to trek. Apart from trekking, this place is wonderful for short hikes and long walks to get you invigorated. The mighty green mountain welcomes you and soon you will be on foot to get to the top.

If you don’t feel up to walking catch an auto rickshaw or hire a private car. Dine in the various number of hotels peppered all across the trekking trail. Don’t expect gourmet food but it will be very tasty and you can enjoy a full meal. The higher you go, the mightier you feel. Watch cars and other vehicles climbing up through the winding road. They are like toy cars and you feel like a giant, like Gulliver in Gulliver’s travels. During weekends, the place is relatively crowded. Tourists and locals all congregate here to enjoy the magnificent surroundings. To enjoy solitude with a quick excursion, opt for weekdays. Ideally speaking you should try to come here during the day. Wear warm clothes to prevent chilling in the icy mist at the top of the viewpoint. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Munnar Itinerary 3 Days.

  • Nice location for scenic beauty. From head workers dam to the road are great. As the crowd is very less, those can enjoy photos with munnar beauty in the background. Lifetime memory and enjoyment. Stunning nature photos, nice for kids and families and also for honeymoon couples.

  • A beautiful place with a beautiful view from the view point. With the mist around the tea estate it will take you to a different world . Just enjoy it. If possible try to take a resort near by and feel it closely.

  • Not much of a point, but a view site. Capture greenery hidden between misty movements of fog and clouds, while sipping from the oh so many varieties of tea. A resort and adventure activities in the vicinity.

  • Such a fresh Nd chilling breezes...... visited during monsoon..... do have a tea over there.... go in morning or evening .... enjoy

  • This view point is awesome. The view of valley is mind blowing from this point. its nearby only from main city approx 2.5kms. I went when it was about to sunset, so i could see the real beauty of this valley. May be at sunrise also this would look same as like it was at sunset. Also, this place is not much crowded. There was a small snacks shop also at this place. Overall, its a view point worth visiting.
