Pothamedu ViewPoint offers you the beauty of the Munnar mist that is engulfing the green hills. The drive to the Pothamedu ViewPoint takes you over an old bridge and narrow roads and the views during the drive is also very scenic. You should try to sip the hot tea from the tea shop near the view point to enjoy the feel of Munnar to the full.
4. Pothamedu view pointWe reached pothamedu view point and pulled off for a break looking at these breathtaking landscapes. Then we moved to anachal via sengulam dam.
Sun was behind the dark clouds when I reached back Munnar at 2 and it started to rain while I was having my lunch. I had anticipated this from the forecast but was lucky enough to cover one stretch without any issues. The Kathakali and Kalaripayattu shows were scheduled to start at 5 PM at Punarjani Traditional Village. There were two spots to cover before I reached there. Unfortunately, when I reached the first one i.e. the Pothamedu viewpoint, it rained heavily again. This was the sign to skip the rest of the plan and head straight to Punarjani which was about 7 km towards Chittirapuram. Due to heavy rains, I took about 1.5 hours to reach while taking continuous pit-stops. The route had water flowing on the road in many places and there were signs of mini landslides in the past, giving it an eerie feel. A pair of rain-proof jacket helped me stick to the timeline and I was half an hour early to the show totally in a drenched state.
