When you go deep into Nature and explore its intrinsic richness, you get a whole new perspective on life. You will realise all over again, how little things delight us and equip our minds to embrace the beauty in all its entirety. This is what Dhoni is all about – bringing joy to minds and leaving a lasting impression. The wilderness, the vastness, the majesty – all of these combine in Dhoni to bring you a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The locale is for sure one of the finest kept secrets that Palakkad district can boast of.
Dhoni Hills, a serene strip of reserve forest area, is an idyllic picnic spot famed for trekking, photography, wildlife spotting and birdwatching. The hills offer breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys, covered in mist. Not to mention the lush greenery that covers the area. One can trek up to various spots such as Malampuzha and Meenavalam. However the most interesting of these is the trek up to the splendid Dhoni waterfalls. The three-hour trek offers amazing views of the surroundings and wildlife in the area. Upon reaching the top, you could even take a dip in the cool waters.
The best time to visit this stunning strip of land is around September, immediately after the monsoon season in Kerala.
