PONMUDI AND CARDAMOM HILLS
Ponmudi is a small hill station and is ideal for a day trip. The hills are not densely forested and are perfect for a casual hike. The journey along the banks of the Kollar River, located 72 km from Poovar, is picturesque, overlooking banana, rice, rubber, teak, tea and pepper plantations. The hike also provides glimpses of village life in South India. Along the way there is a small deer park worth visiting. A dip in Kollar River is also worth considering.
