Agastya Mala - Review

Located 26 kilometers from Trivandrum, Agastya Mala is located on the border of Tamil Nadu and Thiruvananthapuram region. The peak of the mountain lies at a height of 1,868-metre-tall peak within Neyyar Wildlife Sanctuary (Western Ghats of South India) and is loved by nature lovers and avid-hikers who want to explore the untouched part of Trivandrum.

The whole terrain is a hiker’s dream with stretches of mountain peaks that embrace the skies and the lush green paths only add to its refreshing charm. Although hiking through the terrain is preferred in winters, the whole place shines its best during the monsoons.

Agastya Mala, Trivandrum Reviews

  • Very good place for trekking and camping. By needs prior permission from the forest department. Also be prepared to have all necessary gears before going there..

  • It's a wonderful place I ever visited U can explore yourself.. in this trekking. My suggestions are definitely keep the battery full. Put phone on flight mode. And use it for only taking photos. Keep an extra battery if u r carrying a DSLR. Or take pictures less. Whenever necessary.(Day1) Keep battery back up more than 50% to take photos from the top. ( Day2) You definitely gonna like this place. Please reduce Plastic items And do not throw it in juggle.

  • Wow amazing. I gone 2 time there. I feel to visit this place every year in my lifetime.

  • Approximately 7 Km from Athirumala Base camp. Very adventurous with rope climbing. Very steep up hill climbing along the downstream. Fresh elephant dung seen along the bamboo bushes. Have your breakfast along the way. Keep your hands free for climbing. Windcheaters A MUST. Guides on top of the hill near the Agastiyar statue are very friendly and helpful. Start the return trek before 12 noon. Start early reach safely.

  • Its a hilly area with forest coverage ,good place to visit
