This is a must visit location. If you have elderly people or small kids, please avoid. You must hike all the way up to the tip and the view is awesome. Avoid if you have small kids as it could be dangerous on top

Need to trek about 1 plus kilometers. Place 25 to 50 degree inclined. On top there is a iron road to hold keep hold there during evening time. Otherwise the high wind will take you . from top you will get great panoramic view of Tamilnadu. And kuruvan kuruvathi hill.

It's a sculpture of Kuravan's family, indeed a piece of art and almost naked,shows natural beauty, in premitive dress with limited piece of clothes.The sculpture is situated at the hill top at Ramakkalmed. The visitors can pause for selfies with the sculpture as background.

Very nice place to spend few hours, especially with family. Bit too windy at times. Kuravan & Kurathy sculpture is also nice.
