Peerumedu

Peerumedu munnar

Lying at 914 mts above sea level, this beautiful plantation town got its name from the famous Sufi saint Peer Mohd. who was a close associate of Travancore Maharajas. Unending vistas of cardamom, rubber, coffee and pepper plantation dotted with beautiful water falls add charm to this place. The wide open grass lands, mist clad hillocks and tiny revulets make this place a trekkers paradise.Clouds drop gently on the peaks that flank the verdant slopes of Peerumedu. Rich with mile upon mile of plantations falling away in precise steps. Coffee, tea, pepper, cardamom and rubber flourish in what is the most fertile part of the Western Ghats. Broken only by spectacular waterfalls in the distance and wide open grasslands in places. On a fairly warm day, the mercury reads between five and ten degrees celsius. Little wonder then, that the former Rajas of Travancore sought this tiny hill station out as their summer resort.

Peerumedu is 85 kms east to Kottayam (travel time: 2 hours), on the way to Thekkady. There are frequent bus services from nearby cities of Kumily and Kottayam. The Summer Residence, now converted into a government GuestHouse under the Department of Tourism, offers comfortable accommodation
