India | Kerala | Vandiperiyar


Uppupara is about 10 km from Kozhikkanam in Idukki District. It can be accessed by a jeep or bus from Vandiperiyar and Kumily. The winding journey along the Periyar River and Pullumedu offers the most enchanting of the sights.

The Kozhikkanam-Uppupara ghat road cuts through the verdant forest patch in the Periyar Tiger Reserve. The rolling hills draped in greenery, rare flora and fauna and the sprawling velvet lawns offer a breathtaking view for the tourists.

From Uppupara, Sabarimala can be reached by climbing down 4 km by foot through the forest. This way along the dense forest also touches the Pandithavalam. During January to March, the Pathanamthitta District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC) organizes trekking to the Sabari Hills. The trekking route is Ranni-Rajanpara-Nilackal-Sabarimala-Uppupara–Vandiperiyar.
