Nelliampathy
 

Nelliampathy Nestling in the midst of the majestic Western Ghats, the fascinating hill station Nelliampathy is interspersed with picturesque mountains and valleys and tea, coffee, cardamom and orange plantations. Spreading over a total area of 82 sq. kms at a distance of about 52 kms from Palakkad town, this Ooty of Kerala is at a height of 467 m to1572 m above sea level. The forest range of Nelliampathy constitutes a series of ridges cut off from one another by valleys of dark evergreen forests. Nellikotta, also called Padagiri at 1585.08 meters above sea level is the highest peak in this range. The high ranges and luxurious forests here offer immense trekking potential and there are several attractive spots to take off on challenging treks. 

Seethakundu at Nelliampathy offers a spectacular view of the whole valley. The major attraction here is the waterfall from a height of 100 meters. It is believed that during the vanavasa period Rama, Sita and Lakshmana had lived here and Sita Devi took a bath at the Seethakundu, which is named after her.
