Trip to Katappana
Last Tuesday I went to a place in Kerala called Katappana a hill station bordering Kambam Medu in Tamil Nadu.
My friend use to hype about this place. Since I didn’t have a feel of it I took him lightly.
We casually started our drive from Madurai where in my friends picked me from my house in SS Colony which is en route to Theni.
We had non stop drive and crossed Theni, Samayanallur, UthamaPalayam, Cumban & Cumbam Medu.
Cumbam Medu a hill-station which is a part of Tamil Nadu and it has 18 hairpin bends. Roads were bad, people were tan looking tamils & dry trees.
One can see a 360â€¢ Change after crossing the check post. Lust green trees, good roads, fair men and women with typical Kerala costumes. I’ve never felt this change in borders.
Then in 20 min we reached Katapanna and all this 20 min drive I was startled to see posh bungalows and a town which was as posh like a city.
Then my curiosity made me to read about Katappana and I was amazed to know that the place houses many hospitals, educational institutes, shopping complexes & it is spice capital of Kerala. Also for some time land prices were much expensive than cochin.
Then we booked a room to refresh our self and proceeded to a toddy shop and I tasted toddy for the first time. Also I took some snaps of the place, toddy shop, toddy & hotel where we stayed.
