Its a Christmas Special Trek of the mountains and nap on the beautiful beaches of Kerala. It is a Three Day event

Meesapulimala is the second highest peak in the Western Ghats of Idukki district on the Indian subcontinent after Anamudi. Its peak is 2,640 meters (8,661 ft) above sea level.

The name derives from the fact that it is formed of eight hills which spread like a mustache which gave a name as “Meesapulimala”. It is considered to be most beautiful mountains to climb over in the south Western Ghats.

Wikipedia says “Varkala is the only place in southern Kerala where cliffs are found adjacent to the Arabian Sea.
These Cenozoic sedimentary formation cliffs are a unique geological feature on the otherwise flat Kerala coast,
and is known among geologists as Varkala Formation and a geological monument as declared by the Geological Survey of India.
There are numerous water spouts and spas on the sides of these cliffs. In 2015, Ministry of Mines,
The government of India and Geological Survey of India (GSI) have declared Varkala Cliff as a geo-heritage site.”
