Kannadipara, situated in Kudayathoor Vindhyan, also offers panoramic view of Kottayam, Idukki, Ernakulam, Alappuzha, Pathanamthitta and Thrissur districts.
3 km from here is the Pazhakakanam Plateau nourished by the Kadapuzha River. Bamboo groves, meadows and wild flowers make this place exotic.
An added attraction here is the Kazhukankulimali Waterfalls that playfully cascade down the mountain and greet the river below with a magnificent splash. On the eastern side of Kannadipara is a natural fort set amidst steep rocks.
