I have visited Ponmudi twice and never found such a place of unrestricted peacefulness. A person who truly enjoy green, nature and scenic beauty will for sure find Ponmudi as an unique experience. Trivandrum is a city mainly known for beaches and temples. But just 2 hours drive from city will take you to one of the highest peak of Western Ghats.

As per travel and comfortability is concerned, one can take their own vehicle or take a KSRTC bus from Tampanoor Bus Stand, Trivandrum starting from 5 30am which will again take u to the top near the viewpoint. There are very few restruants here including a KTDC cafe and restaurant. Again the food is good. Also if you are looking for stay, check out the KTDC resorts along the hill.

You can find that there are 2 types of Ponmudi. One would be the clear one where you can clearly have a good view of surrounding scenic beauty. The other one is misty one where its very difficult to just have a view 10 meter from where you stand. Both are awesome though.

From what I had experienced, there are 2 sides for Ponmudi. One where all the people visit and roam around, up and down having a grass land hike. Which again is very difficult to find in other hill stations. Also there is another side to Ponmudi hills where you can explore by going on a small trekking trip. You need to take a ticket for this and you will be provided with a guide. The cost was Rs 800 for 8 members when I last visited one year back. You will be taken through a forest, climbing as you go by. Once you reach the other side it again clears to a row of hills. This part is even more beautiful and you would feel that you are walking through clouds.

Another unique feature of Ponmudi hill station is that you would not find the climate very cold even though there is continous chilling wind blowing. Hence it becomes a excellent place for all family members to visit.

There are 3 or more hills to climb here. Climb one and while you enjoy the calmness of nature, you can feel your mind at peace.
