Ramakkalmedu is a small hill station in
the Idukki district of Kerala. Ramakkalmedu is located about 15km from
Nedumkandom on the Munnar-Thekkady route.
One can have breathtaking view of the tamilnadu villages from the hill
tops in Ramakkalmedu. Ramakkalmedu is derived from Rama-kal-medu (Rama’s
foot on the rock). It is believed that the Epic hero Rama set foot on the
hill top rock while he was on search for his wife Sita.
Eventhough Ramakkalmedu has a good potential for tourism, not much have
been done for its development.
