Thekkady - Ramakalmedu

Ramakalmedu is an enchanting retreat with cool weather, unabating green hills and fresh mountain air. At an altitude around 3500 ft above the sea level, Ramakalmedu stands on the Western Ghats. The statue of Kuravan and Kurathi, which was erected in 2005 is the main highlight of Ramakalmedu. And it is the highest twin-statue in Kerala. Kuravan and Kurathi are said to be two historical characters behind the construction of the Idukki dam. Ramakalmedu is one of the windiest places in Asia. Hence there is a wind farm at Ramakalmedu which is built to generate electricity. One can enjoy the scenic view of this charming village from the 300 m high pillar-like structure facing towards the east direction.
