Important Tourist Places

Meenuliyan para

Meenuliyan para is noted for a huge rock that rises more than 4000 feet and has about two acres of evergreen forest on top of it. The rock itself covers an area more than 500 acres. The surface of this huge rock mountain looks like fish scales and hence the mountain gets the name ‘ Meenuliyan Para’. The lofty peaks of the Meenuliyan para are covered in mist on rainy days but on a fine sunny day the lower Periyar area, Bhoothathankettu and even Ernakulam are visible from these heights.Meenuliyan para is located 47 km from Muvattupuzha and 51 km from Thodupuzha. Meenuliyan para can be reached only by a pedestrian path for about 10 km from Mullaringad, in Vannappuram Panchayath in Idukki district. Cochin Port and parts of Thrissur district can also be seen from top of the Meenuliyan para. Meenuliyan para is currently known only to a few nature lovers. Idukki tourism is looking to project the relatively unknown Meenuliyan para into a tourism spot aimed at trekking and mountaineering. The breathtaking views from the top of this huge rock is already attracting attention but still the place remains relatively unknown when compared with other trekker's delights like Parunthumpara near peerumedu.
