Trek to Irukallummudi – a lesser known peak

This time we carried along nothing except an umbrella. No bag. No camera. No food. No water. Just us – two souls on an unending quest for restlessness.

Route
Thodupuzha -> Thattakkuzha -> Cheppukulam

After an hour of journey from thodupuzha, we reached Cheppukulam. To start the trek to Irukallummudi, walk past the CSI church after the last bus stop.

Make sure you have some one with you who knows the way. Because the place is so thinly populated that you can walk hours and find no human being. the safe route is towards the left see of the church. But if you are adventurous, take the road to the right of the church.

Once you reach the top road, the view that awaits you is stunning. One side you a view encompassing poomala, kalayanthaani, keezharkuthu. The other side has the stunning view of muttom dam reservoir and ilaveezha poonchira among many other nameless peaks.
