Pachamalai & Puliyancholai still remain remote for many

 Thursday, September 30, 2021

Pachamalai, a natural water stream and Puliyancholai, a hill station, are two remote locations in the district that are waiting for sufficient financial support for infrastructure development to improve the socio-economic status of locals and swell footfall.

Puliyancholai is located at 77kms from the city. It has natural streams of water starting off from the Kolli hills. The streams flow through hundreds of trees and rocks but do not have pathways to go upstream for a leisurely dip. For tourists the signboards are not sufficient nor the changing rooms and sanitary provisions. Locals pinpoint the fact that a proper road can be made between Puliyancholai to Arapuleeswarar temple. This would help the visitors to access the Aagaya Gangai falls in the Kolli hills.

The connectivity is publicized to help the villagers based in remote areas to earn through tourism. “The new 6km road will interconnect unexplored attractions. Improving roads will enable TNSTC to operate more buses from Trichy and Thuraiyur,” Puthanampatti N Saravanan, a social worker from Thuraiyur said.

Pachamalai hills is the only hill station in the central region. It’s situated about 40kms from Puliyancholai waits for a chance to serve people who are keen to enjoy a nice break with its four major waterfalls – Managalam falls, Etterumai Pazhi falls, Korayar falls and Mayil Ootru falls. Frequent travelers to the hills said that the waterfalls still require safety measures including handrails, safety barriers and separate changing rooms.
