About the campsite
Lesser known & less explored Ramakkalmedu is an enchanting little hill destination, located in the Idukki district of Kerala on Tamilnadu – Kerala border. Ramakkalmedu is one of the windiest places in Asia & hence is dotted with numerous windfarms.
Perched at an altitude of 3500 ft. in the Western Ghats; Ramakkalmedu’s landscape consists of rolling meadows, shola & bamboo forests making it perfect for camping.

Our campsite is placed on top of a hillock surrounded by wind mills; offering stunning views of the Tamil Nadu side of the valley & towering peaks of Western Ghats. With Thekkady, Munnar & other hill towns slowly becoming crowded even for Camping in Kerala; Ramakkalmedu comes as a breath of fresh air for Campers looking to pitch tents in Kerala.
Its proximity to major Kerala towns & easy access from Cumbum & Theni towns of Tamilnadu make this campsite a picture perfect weekend getaway option.

While you camp here; you could also check-out Kuravan Kurathi Statue, Malamuzhakki Vezhambal view point, Thooval waterfalls (30 km) and Vineyards at Cumbum, Tamilnadu (22km).
