Kottakkunnu Amusement Park

Kerala had a real dearth of water theme parks a decade back and the only place where Keralites got a taste of the excitement of water theme parks was the Black thunder situ loacted at Ooty main road, Mettupalayam. The advent of stabilizer major, V guard industries into this business saw the launch of Veegaland in the industrial capital of Kerala Kochi. No wonder, Veegaland became kind of a buzz word for the kiddies and every vacation seemed to be incomplete without a visit to Veegaland. Slowly but steadily lot of water theme parks began to spring up, Silver storm and Dream world in the route to famous Athirappally waterfalls, another one very close to Trivandrum the happy land and the latest addition being the one in Kannur The vismaya. Water theme parks are the place to be in, if one wants to spend some quality time with friends/relatives enjoying the rides, the adventure part keeps the adrenalin rush, the cool clean water quenches the fatigue, and most importantly the bond between the visiting family/friends will surely strengthen, thanks to the effect called team spirit. Discussions on daily chores and difficulties in daily life has no space in such parks. We had one saturday at our perusal for a fun trip with family and being at Kozhikkode the closest which we could chose was the Vismaya water theme park. Called up Vismaya and the lady over phone was quite polite in explaining the activities, rates and the route. Everything fixed and we planned to start our journey at about 9 am so that we could reach the water theme park, situated near Govt Engineering College Kannur by 11am. It was the day of the famous Attukal Pongala, an event where lakhs of ladies make offerings in the form of payasams to the famous Attukal Devi the main diety of Attukal Devi Temple which is situated in Thiruvananthapuram.       Book Now



Adyanpara Water Falls

Adyanpara Water Falls At Adyanpara, the speeding stream finds way through the ups, downs and contours of a black rocky terrain forcing multiple cascades that plummet around 300 feet. It is located in the outskirts of Nilambur town. The name of the waterfall village Kurumbalangode may not sound pleasing. The place is nevertheless very pleasing. Further from Nilambur, paddy fields, teak plantations, bamboo woods and evergreen forest take over the rich red soil of the uneven land. Exotic and migratory birds belonging to this bird haven flock everywhere from tree tops to grassy grounds. By resting on the rocks and flying over the stream they also become part of the waterfall experience. Forest of this region has its fair share of wild life. The waterfall area away from their habitat is generally considered safe. After coming into life at the nearby mountain peak, the stream meanders through the rain forest to the rocky basin. The perennial flow creates cascades all along the way however most of them are too tiny to be taken seriously. Cascades created as it reaches Adyanpara fuse fury to beauty at a notable level.      Book Now
