About Puliancholai

72 KMs away from the hustle of Trichy, Puliancholai has slowly become a safe haven for the quiet and the adventurous alike. Puliancholai is a dense forest range on the foothills of Kollimalai. Aggressive steps are being taken by the district administration to bring Pulianchalai up as a tourist spot, since it has proven to be an accessible entry point for the beautiful Kolli Hills.

The calm of the tamarind groves and the Akaya Gangai waterfalls invite trekkers from across the country throughout the year. Apart from the scenic attractions in the locality, the village itself glistens with charm. You can't help but smile when you see animals and children bathe in the same makeshift lake formed because of check dams. There are many streams where the tourists can have leisure swim. People around here believe that the water in these streams has great medicinal value as it flows through superfluous herbal plants.

Just about every Illayaraja song could provide an apt backdrop to a walk through the village. For those who trek and for those who don't -- Puliancholai is equally pleasant on the eye.
This sleepy hamlet can witness the footfall of devotees going to worship a Shiva Temple which is situated some 12 km interior of the thick vegetation. There is lots of scope for converting this place into a trekking base nearly 24 tracks can be identified in Puliancholai. Thus this sightseeing nearby Tirchy is strongly recommended for Adventure Lovers and Trekkers.
