This place offer amazing views from up top. Adventurous drive to get to the location. You can ride your private vehicle up to two kms away from the view point. From there, you have to take a government approved transportation. Great place to visit.

I visited illikkal kallu with my wife. It's so peaceful and calm.its 3000 above sea level. Beautiful clear view of sunrise and sunset adds more romance to the mood. 360° view that includes Alleppey light house is really wonderful. Illikkal kallu is must visit place.
