Palakkad

Celebrated as the granary of Kerala, Palakkad is a vast expanse of fertile plains interspersed with hills, rivers, mountain streams and forests.

The gateway to Kerala from the north, a 40km break in the mountains known as the Palakkad Gap gives access to this area at the foot of the Western Ghats. The pass acts as a corridor between Kerala and neighbouring Tamil Nadu and played a major role in the trade contacts between east and west coasts of peninsular India. The town of the same name with its 18th century granite fort stands testimony to its turbulent past.

Today it is a tranquil place to stay off the beaten track offering an insight into its mix of Tamil and Keralan rural culture.
