Aamappara- a hidden gem in Kerala

Aamappara jeep ride

It took nearly 1 hour to reach Aamappara from Thekkady. First by car to ramakalmedu and then by a Jeep to Ammappara. We hired the jeep from the entrance gate of Kuruvan kuruvathi statue. We were diverted from the main road after few kilo meters and entered the narrow off road that leads to the hill. At first we were bit nervous while climbing the mountain road, but later we realised that our driver Mr Saneesh is an expert on these kinds of roads and gradually we laid back .Only Jeeps with front wheel drive can reach the top of Aamappara, luckily ours was a 4*4.
