Nadukani Hydel Tourism Center

Nadukani Pavilion, located in the Idukki district of Kerala, is a popular hill viewpoint that offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Western Ghats and the surrounding valleys. It is situated on the top of a hill, at an altitude of 3000 feet above sea level, between Thodupuzha and Idukki, in the vicinity of Kulamavu. This hill station offers a clear view of the Muvattupuzha River, Moolamattom town, Malankara Reservoir and picturesque mountains touching the sky.There is a two -storeyed pavilion that makes a safe place to enjoy the landscape. Nadukani offers all the visitors a great time enjoying the awesome beauty of the greenish surroundings.

The pavilion was built in 1966 by the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB), as part of the Idukki Hydroelectric Project. The project involved the construction of three dams across the Periyar river, creating one of the largest artificial lakes in Asia. The pavilion was named after Nadukani, a village near the site.

The circular structure of the pavilion has a dome-shaped roof and a viewing gallery. There are benches and a small garden around the pavilion, providing a perfect setting for visitors to enjoy the view. The pavilion is open to visitors throughout the year, except during the monsoon season.

The best time to visit is during the winter season, between October and February when the weather is pleasant and the sky is clear, providing a clear view of the surrounding hills and valleys.
