Palakkad
Location:  38 km from Mannarkkad, Palakkad district, North Kerala. Situated on the northeastern side of the district and spread over an area of 827 sq km.

Attractions :  Attappady is one of the largest tribal settlements in the state. The grandiloquence of this great symphony of forests, rivers and mountains is aweinspiring. Many tribals like the Irulas and the Mudugas live here, though the density of their population is very low. The tribals worship the mountain peak "Malleeswaran’ as a huge ’Sivalinga’ (the Linga is the venerated image of Lord Siva) and Sivarathri at the Malleeswaran temple is the most important festival celebrated by the tribals. The Malleeswaran peak and the river Bhavani have a tremendous influence on the lives of the tribals. The highland terrains are mostly fed by the tributaries of the river Cauvery. A PWD Rest House, a VIP Guest House and a few private hotels offer accommodation at Agali, 38 km northeast of Mannarkkad.  

Getting there:  
Nearest railway station :   Palakkad, about  40 km from Mannarkkad.
Nearest airport :   Coimbatore, in the neighbouring state Tamilnadu about  55 km from Palakkad.
