Ramakkalmedu is a hill station and a hamlet in Idukki district in the Indian state of Kerala. It is located about 15 km from Nedumkandam off the Munnar-Thekkady route. Ramakalmedu stands tall in the western ghats at a height of 3500 feet above sea level. From here, one can enjoy the panoramic view of the picturesque villages of Bodi and Cumbum on the Eastern slope of the Western Ghats, the brown grounds crisscrossed by roads and lush green vistas.

By foot or by vehicle, Ramakkalmedu welcomes all its tourists with its wooing winds. For a wonderful experience, leave your vehicle in the valley and set out on your foot. Trek with the gushing breeze. The sweat and the rocks will eventually give way to a grand awe at the top. You cannot but exclaim, “it’s worth the pain!” On the open meadows of the mount stand two huge statues of a ‘kuravan’ and a ‘kurathi’ and their child (people with tribal background) looking down nonchalantly at the visitors.

Ramakkalmedu is one of the most windy places in Asia. Legend has it that Lord Rama came here during his search for Sita, his wife. Blessed by the touch of Lord Rama’s feet, the mount acquired the name Ramakkalmedu. By foot or by vehicle, Ramakkalmedu welcomes all its tourists with its wooing winds. 4 km down the mount you will reach Thirumalairayar Perumal Kovil in the border of Kerala and Tamilnadu. Trek down through the meandering path less traveled by. Butterflies linger lazily and the sun fails to show its bright smiling face along the way.
