Enroute the misty hills of Ponmudi, a nature friendly, river hugging retreat that can be a lovely space for a couple, family or artists in residence.
Tall roofs and earthen walls translate to surreal evenings, tasteful decor adds to the natural charm. Barbecue by the river, tea spots, pebble balancing, morning jogs by the iron bridge across the river to ever green forest and tribal hamlets. One day is not enough for the real explorer; that is if you managed to come away from the splashy river.

The entire house and the compound. There’s a private bathing ghat right from with in the compound where you can chill out.

Other things to note
Kallar is a small riverside village en-route to Ponmudi, via Nedumangad and Vithura. It takes about 1 hour to reach there from Trivandrum. About 5 kms after Vithura town, and before reaching Kallar junction, ask for the 26th mile bus stop, and ask for this cottage at any shop there. It is on the left side, along with the river. The house is just 50 meters down a small road from the main road. You can easily take a bike down, or a small car. But I'd advise you park the car on the quiet side of the road.

It is close to the main road leading up to Ponmudi but you’d never feel the proximity once you are inside the compound. The sound of the stream takes you into another world in seconds, though you are close to the road, shops or a restaurant just a walk away

Food is not provided at this home stay. There’s minimum facilities to cook like fridge, microwave oven and a portable barbecue grill for the guests to make use. If required the care taker Rajesh can bring food from nearby restaurants.
