Must visit place... If you are planning to trip to kanyakumari / Nagercoil... Walking on top of the 100 feet elevated aqueduct with greenery in both the side is awesome... Take care of kids while walking on the bridge as the railings are not adequate

The place is very scenic, lush green and worth the trip. It is a bit far from the kanyakumari beach, but you can embrace the picturesque hills and greenery

Heard very good review about this place, but during summer it was a dry land. No water, so we were not able to see much. But it's worth to visit to see how our great leaders have planned for water irrigation in those days!! Hats...More
