Bellikkal

State: 

Bellikkal is a small village located in the Nilgiris of the Western Ghats of Tamilnadu. The tiny hamlet of Bellikkal is still fairly unknown and has therefore maintained its natural charm and peace. The Mudumalai forest, the Bandipur forest, and the Moyar River can all be enjoyed from this hill village. There are several vantage points at Bellikkal that offer panoramic views of both forests with the surrounding mountain peaks, hills, valleys and rivers.
