Perumthenaruvi which literally means honey river, is
a picturesque tourist spot situated in Vechoochira Panchayath in Ranni
Taluk, about 36 km from Pathanamthitta. One can reach Perumthenaruvi either
through the Pathanamthitta-Ranni route or the Kottayam-Erumely route.
It is a favourite picnic spot among the tourists, with an awesome view
of water cascading from a rocky path at a height of 60 to 100 ft. Perhaps,
the collection of beehives found near the river side, might have incited the
ancestors to name the river as Perunthenaruvi.
