The Konni Forest reserves are a great place to spend a day with your family if you’re visiting Pathanamthitta, especially because it’s a very well-organised forest resort with excellent guides willing to take you around the place. If you can visit the elephant training centre where they break in wild elephants. Or, ride the bowl-shaped boats. Top tip- the bowl boats may get your head spinning, so better ride it on an empty stomach. You wouldn’t want to make a mess of yourself in one of the best places to visit in Pathanamthitta, right?
Yes, most tour guides will swear by a visit to Sabarimala, but it’s off the beaten path that you find real treasure. Pathanamathitta, a jungle kingdom, beckons the young and the old. As long as you’re mindful of the local traditions and don’t litter the place, you will be fine. It’s the same as other tourist places, we guess. Flights to Pathanamathitta are generally overbooked in November and December because the Sabarimala temple is open during this period. But you can also plan a visit sometime just before the peak season, and that is in September or October. It’s when the monsoons wear off and the place starts to cool down, since winter season from November to February. You will need a local guide, which many top hotels will be able to organise for you. Additionally, carry good shoes since you’ll have to walk around a lot. For more such detailed travel-related information, visit intermiles.com.
