About Nedumkandam hill

Nedumkandam is the capital of Idduki. It is a hilly region with picturesque landscapes and scenic beauty. The observatory hill here is a perfect location for people who love watching heavenly bodies as the sky here is clear and free of pollution.

Nedumkandam is a longish town extending along the 2 km stretch of road somewhat midway between Thekkady and Munnar. A town with a history of less than four decades, it is a testimony to the high rate of migration from the low lands of Kerala in this time span. Earlier elephants roamed around freely, but today the town is well developed with computer training centers, Internet cafe, Polytechnic, B.Ed College and a spate of Government offices littered among the business centers.

Pepper and cardamom are the mainstays of the economy. In the dawn hours, riders with pails of milk can be seen descending to the town from their boards in the hills around Nedumkandam. The milk, collected by societies and carted off to Kochi, Kottayam etc. has sustained many a family in the lean years after their pepper vines were decimated by the wilt disease.
