“There’s a place called Mini-Ooty. Not far”.
My cousin plainly told me when I asked for a nice place nearby.
We set out quick… Trailing just around 9 kms from Malappuram (Kerala, South India) towards Kozhikode,
is a suburb called Aravankara, which has a fine road route to the hills of Arimbra Mala, a.k.a. Mini Ooty.
We drove through slopes, twists and turns and in a good time afternoon our wheels climbed the hill.
We felt the chill of the hills on the way to its top. Certainly it’s a mini Ooty!
Gazing beneath the haze and horizon of Malappuram monsoon skies, lies the flat, calm, multi-greenish and wide expanse of
land that is pinned with trees, trees looking like thick grass, lined with rocks and waterways and occasional roads.
