Palakkad, a dazzling jewel in the emerald necklace of Western Ghats, is blessed with great scenic splendor and abundant natural resources. Situated at the foot of the magnificent Western Ghats; a cornucopia of exotic flora and fauna, Palakkad conjures to life a blissful paradise of lush green valleys, verdant hills and picture postcard scenery.

Palakkad, with its mist covered rolling hills, wild flowers blooming in tropical wilderness, green paddy fields set against an azure sky and kids frolicking and playing in the streets offer a perfect rural escapade to unwind your body and soul.

Palakkad is often acclaimed as the granary of Kerala due to the plethora of rice fields dotting the landscape. The town of Palakkad still retains a tint of its old bucolic charms in its slow moving bullock carts transporting goods, people lazing around huge banyan trees in the temple compounds, children flying kites in the countryside et cetera.

Palakkad derives its name from Pala and Kadu; Pala (Alstonia Scholaris) is a tree found abundantly in the region and Kadu meaning forest. Palakkad is also an entryway to Kerala from the eastern side of the Western Ghats. Palakkad beckons a traveler to revel in its opulent natural delights. Being at the border with Tamil Nadu, the culture here is a rich mix of both lands.
