Ilaveezhapoonchira is a tourist destination located in Melukavu village in Kottayam district near Kanjar. It is surrounded by three enchanting hillocks – Mankunnu, Kodayathoormala and Thonippara. This makes the place ideal for trekking.

Ilaveezhapoonchira, means ‘the pond of flowers where the leaves do not fall’. During the monsoons, the valley between a complex of mountains fills up to form a large pond. Ilavvezha Poonchira is located 55 km from Kottayam, and is 20 km from Thodupuzha.

From Ilaveezhapoonchira, it is possible to see large parts of Idukki, Kottayam, Ernakulam, Alappuzha, Pathanamthitta and Thrissur districts. It is one of the places in Kerala where you can watch sunrise and sunset.

The spectacular view of the mystic hills and unwinding roads that lead to Ilaveezhapoonchira will give filled energy to complete 3 hour trekking to the top of the hill.

Legend has it that the valley was a temporary home to the Pandavas during their life without identity. While they resided on the lap of nature, Draupadi, their beautiful wife, used to take her bath in lake. Some Deva’s enchanted by her beauty, happened to watch her bathing.This act was rebuke by Lord Indra and he built hills that engulfed the pond acting like a screen to Draupadi.
