Visit to Ezhattumugham Prakruthi Gramam
Ezhattumugham is a nature shaped country village in the Ernakulam Trissur border .It is situated 11.8 km from the Kochi Airport and 40 km from Cochin. Prakrithi Gramam ( Nature Village) Quaint and serene, the river Chalakkudy at Ezhattumugham is a unique nature tip.
A full-grown tree surrounded and nurtured by flowing water is a sight one cannot easily forget. And the mini waterfalls, which not only tickle your feet, but also remind you of the gentle force of water.
Here the Chalakkudy gets by the islets and boulders into seven flowing streams, and that is how Ezhattu-mugham (seven faces of a river) gets its name. Look around and there are so many shades of green, colors of stones mixed together with flowing streams.
During the non-monsoon months, the river bares its beautiful depths and you can walk on these boulders and islets through shallow water, right to the other bank of the river.
While one side of the river is the northernmost end of Ernakulam district, the other bank of the river is where Thrissur district begins. The river and the islets coexist in absolute harmony.
