Idukki

Population: 1,079,369 55km from Munnar

This district falls in the mountainous region of Kerala and is marked by hills, dense forests, valleys and a wide-ranging flora and fauna. Idukki's name has been derived from the Malayalam word 'Idukku', which means a narrow gorge. The district is mainly watered by the River Periyar and its tributaries, Thodupuzha and Pambar. Idukki is known as the power centre of Kerala as it generates nearly 80% of the state's electricity.

Idukki's speciality lies in its unique geographical characteristics. Mountains with high hills and deep valleys account for a major portion of the district. The eastern side of the district is covered with forests that occupy 45% of the area in the district.

The Idukki Arch Dam is the world's second and Asia's first arch dam. It has been constructed over the Kuravan and Kurathi Hills. The Idukki Wildlife Sanctuary is located nearby. Though smaller than the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, this sanctuary also boasts of a wide-ranging flora and fauna.

Munnar

  • 304km from Thiruvananthapuram 55km from Idukki

Munnar is situated at a height of 1524m above sea level. A small town surrounded by the Annamalai mountains, Munnar is situated at the confluence of three rivers Muthirappuzh, Nallathanni and Kundala. Thanks to its geographical location, Munnar is one of the most sought after hill stations in Kerala, and served as the erstwhile British government's summer resort in South India. The lakes, reservoirs, forests and tea estates make it a paradise for nature lovers. Close by is the highest peak of the South, Anai Mudi.
