A bike, a selfie and off we go to these most 'liked' places

There has been a sea of a change in the way people travel after the advent of social media. Especially in Kerala. More and more young people have taken to going places and posting pictures online. On World Tourism Day, we give you a list of places which are the hot favorites with this new breed of travelers. 

Illikkal Kallu

It used to be a long trek to Illikkal Kallu until a road was commissioned and overnight, it became one of the most popular locations. The road will take you to the foot of the hill. There is a narrow path which will take you across the Narakapalam, up the hill, but it is advisable to stay where the road ends and take the sights. The sheer slope is tricky and two people have already lost their lives here. You have to be very cautious and try not to give in to the rush of adrenalin and climb the hill for that perfect selfie which you can boast about.  A trip to Illikkal Kallu
