Ramakkalmedu - Wind Effect
Views of the Plains from hills around Thekkady
Ramakkalmedu is situated 45 kms from Thekkady and 77 kms from Munnar, just off the Thekkady - Madurai route.
Lord Rama is said to have visited the area for his search for his wife Sita and therefore its named Ramakkal. Being located at Ramakkal (4500 ft asl) is where guests arrive to experience the wind effect. The gust of air is about 25 km/hour over here and recorded as maximum in Asia and makes it excellent for paragliding.
Ramakkal is kind of a local getaway where guests enjoy nature and for tourists there are day trips to Thekkady, Munnar, Vagamon, Vineyards of Kambum, spice garden tour, trekking, boating and cultural activities.
