Literally meaning "the pond or lake of the Devi", Devikulam is a small hill station in the state of Kerala where the possibility of getting mesmerized by its sheer scenic grandeur is a rule rather than an exception. The town is situated in the Idukki District of Kerala, 1800 metres above sea level & 16 Km from Munnar. This idyllic hill station of Devikulam with its breath-taking locales, velvet lawns and the cool fresh air is famous for its softly gushing waterfalls that cascade from steep heights and the unique flora and fauna.Legend has it that Sita of the Ramayana fame came here and bathed in the waters of the lake in Devikulam hills. The lake draws many tourists not just for its sacredness but also the curative powers of its mineral water.Other than the beautiful scenery, Devikulam hill station also offers opportunity for mountaineering, hill climbing and nature trekking, not to mention of it being a popular picnic spot.
