Located 16 kms from Munnar, this gorgeous hill station symbolises nature in
her pristine glory. The crisp and cool mountain air heavily laden with the
fragrance of wild flowers and rare herbs is any nature lover's paradise.
The Sita Devi Lake offers rejuvenating springs of mineral water and is also
a favourite picnic spot among tourists. Besides the expansive tea
plantations, a spice garden run by the district tourism promotion council
nurtures a wide variety of spices.
The idyllic hill station with its velvet lawns, exotic flora and fauna and
the cool mountain air offers a rare experience to visitors. The Sita Devi
Lake is an ideal place for trout fishing.
Irresistibly green slopes touching the sky at a thousand metres. Silent
clusters of slender red and blue gum trees. A lovely, little lake hidden
within the rolling hills. This is Devikulam. A dainty town sixteen
kilometres southwest of Munnar.
A perfect picture of fairy-tale enchantment. The legend has it that once
Sita Devi, the holy consort of Lord Rama, came down to frolic in the lake
and the place came to be spoken about as 'Devikulam' (meaning the lake of
the goddess), ever since.
