Spread over thousands of acres of land, is the beautiful valley of Ilaveezhapoonchira. This valley, set amidst the beautiful hillocks of Kanjar, beautifully skirts the district of Kottayam. The fact that Ilaveezhapoonchira is a great trekking destination makes it an even more delightful picnic spot.
During the monsoons, these valleys fill up to form a scenic lake; that’s when this place grows in beauty beyond words. Ila-veezhaa-poonchira, translates to 'the flower pond where leaves do not fall'. True to its name, this is a valley void of trees.
Ilaveezhapoonchira, being surrounded by three enchanting hillocks - Mankunnu, Kodayathoormala and and Thonippara is probably the best place in all of Kerala, where the sunrise and sunset are the most spectacular. This mesmerising valley is one of the most exotic trekking locations, where you can opt to go on a drive either on a 4-wheeler or on a powerful bike. Talk of flexibility!
If you are a trekking enthusiast, Ilaveezhapoonchira is a must-go-for destination. The scenic view, the cool breeze and the misty climate is a world you want to be part of. Feel your heart skip a beat or two with the view from the top. Realise what it means to feel spellbound and simply speechless!
