Hill View Park, A Worthy Place Located Nearby Idukki Dam, Kerala in India

Updated on September 16, 2018

Idukki and Cheruthoni Dams in Idukki district of Kerala, India are the most popular tourist attractions of the state. Of which Idukki Dam is more famous for being the biggest arch dam of Asia with an amazing height of 550 ft.

These days both Idukki and Cheruthoni Dam will not be always kept opened for the visitors coming from nearby area and other parts of the country. But, people would get opportunity of walking along these dam tops only on festival and vacation times. At that time dam officials there charge Rs. 10/- per head to enter into the Dams.

Many people who came here in unseason became frustrated because they would not be allowed to have a walk on the top of the dams. Here is the good news for those who missed the chance of enjoy seeing those giant dams. If you are not allowed to see the dams, you can just go to enjoy the nearby park called 'Hill View Park'.

I hope anyone would like that magnificent and wonderful park spreads over 8 acres and flourished with many hundreds of species of crotons, flowers and other vegetation. The entry fee is just Rs.10/- for adult and Rs.5/- for children. It will be kept opened throughout the year and you can come here with full confidence to enjoy natural sceneries. The park is situated at about 1.5 Km from the Idukki town and at about 350 ft above the dam water level. From the park we can get the panoramic aerial view of both Cheruthoni, lying on the left and Idukki Dam, lying on the opposite side of the park. The park has been carefully and neatly constructed on a small hill and we can easily climb up and enjoy every part of the park which would attract us with countless number of colorful crotons, herbal plants and beautiful flowers. We can easily reach every part of the park as it is provided with gentle slope paths. Words to be found to express the ultimate beauty of surrounding cloud caping hills, variety of wood species and flowering plants that we could view while climbing up the park. In one corner of the park we can find a small pond where we can enjoy pedal boating. On the toppest point of the park we can find a beautiful watchtower from where we could enjoy the ultimate beauty of glittering water of both dams, bird eye view of Idukki town and surrounding beautiful hills in all the four directions.

If you are provided with a powerful binocular, then you have a lot of things to watch from there. Sometimes you may get an opportunity of watching wild animals like elephants, deers and bisons in their natural habitat. However, you will be 100% safe from the wild animal areas. The other plus of the park is that every risky point of the park is carefully fenced with the grills to ensure the safety of visitors.

Accommodations

At the entrance of the park we can have the room facilities managed by KTDC at reasonable tariff with dining facilities. They are charging daily tariff Rs.450/- for double bedroom and Rs.650/- for triple bedroom. For more information you can contact the phone number: 04862233086 (Idukki Dam Guest House). The beautiful park will certainly render unforgettable sweet memories when we visit here. Sometimes your group may be only one to visit the park. So, you could have an opportunity of enjoying ultimate beauty of nature in 100% privacy.
