Kanthalloor and its surroundings are a part of the Shola evergreen forest ranges and the rugged terrain provides scenic beauty in the form of waterfalls, mountain views, eucalyptus forests and the wildlife that they hold within.

Single mount view point (Othakal para) : This is an off road drive which will take us into the forest area. We will go through some narrow and bumpy roads which will give the real experience of an off road drive. From the parking area, we need to trek for around 1km through a narrow path to reach the tip of a mountain. This is a real scenic place and a paradise for the photographers.
Bhramaram shooting spot : Famous after the movie malayalam Bhramaram where Mohanlal rides the jeep on top of this rocky mountain. Even thought its not a complete off road route, its better to go in the jeep as the road condition is very bad for the cars. We need to trek through a narrow path for around 500 meters from the parking area to reach this plain rocky view point. This area is surrounded by the lemon grass farming. The view from the top of this rock is really amazing and sunset view is really a good scenary from here.
Fruits Farm : Kanthalloor is also called as the apple village of Kerala. There are few fruits and vegetable garden in this place. Babu chettan's fruits farm is one of the easy accessible farm for the visitors and we have to pay around Rs.10 for one person to enter inside. Apples, Oranges as well as several varieties of Peaches and Plums are grown here.
