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. But needs prior permission from the forest department. Also be prepared to have all necessary gears before going there especially good woollen clothes and blankets....

  • It was my first trekking experience.Its not just a trekking..Its a mix of adventurous,spiritualty and finaly it determines our health.....The virgin forest is an amazing experience of cool...Agasthyavanam gave the most beautiful trekking experience...Leaves are snow covered and sunlight unable to reach in to the forest..Savanna was little tougher due to the heavy summer....In short it was my Lifes most amazing experience I have ever had....Nothing can compete this,realy amazing...!!!

  • The great mountain in tamilnadu compared to other mountains, It has lots of heritage and history.

  • Podhigai Mountain (Agasthya Malai) is South Kailash

  • Amazing place for deep trekking. It consist of 3 days trek. 1st day we will be starting from the base camp after the bag check then we will cross some rivers to relax and enjoy. The food will be provided in the base camp itself. We have to reach the upper camp before 6 pm or it will be risk to roam there. Many photographic sites will be located. Then after reaching the upper camp at evening chai and some snacks will be provided. We have to pay for it. And then enjoing that night under the moon with cool breaze surrounded by will be challenging. Tale rest as much as possible next day needs little energy. Day 2 you have to climb some verticals paths and rope climbing to see the sain agasthiyar. It will be awesome to go there but be cautious. Then before evening we have to return to the same camp. Take rest and next day start moving to base camp. Such a amazing place to trek.
