Illickan Mountain : Great place for Trekking.


Illickan Mountain (also known as Illikkal Kallu in malayalam) comprises three hills, each rising to 4000 ft. and above sea level. Each of the hills has a peculiar shape. It is located 10 km from Erattupetta in Kottayam District of Kerala State, India. Numerous mountain streams in this peak, flow down to form the Meenachil River. Tourists must trek 3 km to reach the summit of the peak.
Kuda Kallu
One of hills resembles a mushroom, which is why it is known as Kuda Kallu (umbrella shaped rock). It is said that the medicinal herb Neela Koduveli grows here. This blue flower is also believed to possess supernatural powers, which could increase wealth and ensure a rich harvest.
Koonu Kallu
The second hill, has a small hunch on the sides and is therefore referred to as Koonu Kallu (hunch back rock). Across this rock is a 1/2 ft. wide bridge called Narakapalam (bridge to hell).
