Amrithamedu, popularly nicknamed as Kurisumala (hill of the cross), is a popular pilgrim centre as well as a trekker's paradise. Located in one of Kerala’s most picturesque districts, Idukki, Amrithamedu is popular with Christian pilgrims. During Easter, pilgrims climb the 'Stations of the Cross', which would require a pilgrim to cover 14 points, with each point having a cross,symbolising various phases of Jesus Christ's last journey. The ninth Cross, often shrouded in mists, is a popular attraction. The hill slopes are covered by tea estates.
