Peaceful Palakkad

Amidst stately hills and endless stretches of velvety paddy fields is the quaint town of Palakkad. Although Palakkad does not scream its presence in promotions of Kerala tourism, it has a steady inflow of patrons who enjoy coming to this unassuming town and its welcoming people. I was in Palakkad to unwind in the peaceful environs of Kairali, an Ayurvedic Health Resort.

Kairali was ranked amongst the top 50 wellness Meccas in the world by National Geographic Traveller in 2008.

For more info log on to

One of the thirty cottages at the resort.

A mechanized threshing machine in the paddy fields.

A pineapple in Kairali's organic garden. It also had gourd, chilli, tomato, banana, greens, brinjal and ladies finger plants.

On our way uphill to Neliampathy.

At the Malampuzha Dam, the largest reservior in Kerala.

A rainbow in a fountain!

This is a rivulet that runs by most of the cottages at Kairali Ayurvedic Resort, Palakkad.

I didnt get to see much of greenery when I had been to Palghat in Feb.. Either I didnt notice or it was not there.. :) But it is so nice to see the lush green and rich photos :)
