Kerala is blessed with so much of greenery unlike other destinations in India. The meadows and tea estates are the real contributors of this natural beauty. Meadows are of ecological importance because they are open, sunny areas that attract and support flora and fauna that couldn’t thrive in other conditions.
The Vagamon and Wayanad are so popular for the green meadows and most of you (From Kerala) might have conquered these destinations by this time. Now I have a charming destination to share with you near Vagamon.
The lush and green meadows
Travelers visiting Vagamon can definitely consider this beautiful destination in their travel bucket. Uluppuni is around 16kms from vagamon towards pulikanam route.
The major attraction of Uluppuni is the picturesque meadows. whoever visited Vagamon might have seen the real beauty of meadows there. One can see the even better version of the meadows at Uluppuni.
Uluppuni journey will be a very good trekking experience and worth putting some efforts to see the majestic scenery. The route is completely in an off-road condition which can offer you certain level of adventure also.
Almost 7 kms needs to be traveled in this off-road for the view points. You can see the Kulamavu Dam reservoir from the view point which is exceptionally beautiful from the hill top.
One of the famous malayalam action drama movie, Iyobinte Pusthakam (The book of Iyob ) has shot in Uluppuni. This enchanting beauty is not yet commercialized like Vagamon and Nearby destinations.
I am recommending this destinations for the adventure trekkers and nature lovers. The fresh air and the cool breeze at the Uluppuni will never make you feel returning from there.
How to reach Uluppuni
Basically there are two routes to reach Uluppuni. One is through Chottupara Junction before reaching Vagamon. Next is through Moolamattam , which is a complete off-road route. You can not take your four-wheeler till the hill station.
