The lake at Devikulam draws tourists

Devikulam is about 8 km from Munnar, its located at a 300m higher altitude than Munnar. The weather is even better there. Try to stay in tourism dept owned yatrinivas. Excellent rooms and decent rates. Dont miss to see the old devikulam lake inside the forest.

Devikulam Overview

Devikulam, located in the Idukki district of Kerala, is a small hill resort. It is located 16 km away from Munnar, which is one of its better known cousins. Like most of God’s own country, Devikulam also has abundant natural beauty and scenic surroundings. The origin of the name of the resort lies in Hindu Mythology.

Legend has it that Goddess Sita of Ramayana fame bathed in the lake waters of Devikulam; thus, the word Devikulam. It comes from two words, ‘Devi’ referring to Goddess Sita and ‘Kulam’ referring to the pond or the lake.

Devikulam is famous for its cascading waterfalls as well as lake where Goddess Sita is supposed to have taken a bath. The lake not only holds sacred value but it is also supposed to have healing powers. Located close to the lake are the tea plantations of the area, the Pallivasal waterfalls and some natural vegetation. Devikulam can be visited anytime of the year due to its pleasant climate.

The lush green open spaces and the high cliffs of Devikulam provide scope for hiking and mountaineering. From Devikulam excursions can be taken to the Mattupetty Lake and the Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is 50 km away and animals like leopard, elephant, sambar and gaur can be spotted here. The Thoovanam Falls on the Chinnar River is also another attraction.
