Kallar

 

Kallar is a picturesque picnic spot situated about 46kms from Thiruvananthapuram en route to the popular hill station of Ponmudi. The name Kallar ('kallu' means stone and 'aru' means river) is derived from the river Kallar which flows through the region. It is located in the foothills of the western ghats and a trek of 1.5km though thick forest would take visitors to the beautiful Meenmutty waterfalls. On the way to the waterfall, one would come across ample varieties of tress and birds species.

It is dangerous to go their during monsoon, as the heavy rain can raise the level of the river and sweep away things that come in its way. The location is managed by Kallar Vana Samrakshana Samithi (VSS) under Thiruvananthapuram Forest Development Agency. Visitors to Kallar can make use of the modern tourist facilitation centre run by the District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC). It offers facilities for recreation and also for organizing parties. A restaurant, toilet, changing rooms, shops that sell forest produce, STD and ISD booths and a car parking area are there at the facilitation centre.
