Early Morning Palakkad- Meenakshipuram road
I am not sure who’s idea but a perumal temple on top of the hill, thrilling walk, no roads available. The Anamalai, Pollachi Valley view is fantastic.
Anamalai valley view from Perumal Koil Hill top
Aliyar Dam, needs to climb all the steps
You can see the beautiful Valparai Ghat road and Anamali hills behind me, that’s my next destination
Aliyar Dam is located in the foothills of Valparai, in the Anamalai Hills
Stream flowing out of Aliyar Dam that used for irrigation.
Aliyar Dam Park, not well maintained but enjoyable.
