Its not every day that you get to climb up to the peak of ecstasy. It takes a truly special and unique destination to touch your heart profoundly and create that euphoric feeling of being on top of the world. Often, on your trips to mountain ranges, you get to experience the fascinating sights and sounds that give you this feeling; and some hills take you to those extra heights of joy. Mampara Peak in Palakkad is indeed one such destination.
Located about 20 km away from Nelliyampathy and at an altitude of 5,250 ft above sea level, the Mampara Peak gives a panoramic view of the Palakkad range. The views from this spot are truly breathtaking. The lushness of the valleys, the richness of the forests, the beguiling beauty of paddy fields – the sights that Mampara Peak lets you enjoy are astounding. Standing at such a vantage point, you will also be able to have a glimpse of various landmarks of the area including dams such as Malampuzha, Chulliyar, Meenkara, Mulathara and Walayar. You will also get to see parts of a few towns located in the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu, including Coimbatore, Mettupalayam and Pollachi.
The locale is also filled with rare flora and fauna, adding to the mystical beauty of the peak.
