Peruvanmala is located in Thalakkottukara village on Thrissur Kozhikode highway near kechery. A natural hillock with rolling land bedspreaded with grass pasture and mosaic of trees. It is a low-altitude grassland of about 100 m above the sea level.

The meadow spreads to an area of about 50 acres and attracts all nature-lovers with its bounty. The visiting season starts by June. One or two weeks after summer-rain, the grass starts sprouting and the hillock grows beautiful. We can approach the hill up to half a km by vehicle. Trekking from the foot of the hill, we can conquer the peak in half an hour. From the peak, we get a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding landscape. The most beautiful point to relax on Peruvnmala is under Almavu – a grouping of ficus and mango tree. One can spent hours under the tree watching the panoramic distant views.

Another attraction of Peruvanmala is the presence of a beautiful flowering herb “Kannamthali” (Exacum bicolor). The plant sprouts along with grass and starts blooming in August. The flower has four petals with a cream-coloured tip. It is in full bloom during the Onam season (August-September) and extends to January. The plants in full bloom amidst the grass are an amazing sight.
