Chitteeppara is the highest mountain in Nedumangadu Taluk and its exact location is at Tholicode Village. The place is good for trekking and site seeing. The scene of Tholicode Town is awesome from the top of the rock.
Its a relatively unexplored place, which became kind of popular in recent times. Early morning is the best time to visit (5-6am). Snacks and Drinks must be taken with you since there is almost 1km of walking up the slope to reach the viewpoint and there are no nearby stores. There is also a small temple near the viewpoint which is worth a visit.
Mainly two roads are the official & popular way to the hilltop. Now, the one way is fully concreted and the vehicles is drivable to the end of the road. The jeep and off-road vehicles are appropriate for this road.
Sunrise and sunset is very aesthetic with a near-360° experience which is really breathtaking.
