Attractions in Poonchira:- The dramatic and distinctive outline of the mountain ranges gives this hill station a distinctive and dramatic appearance. Just below the hill, there is a small perennial pond-like body of water called Elaveezhapoonchira. This mystical land is dotted with three tribal settlements and four natural caves. In this valley, the Pandavas lived incognito during their exile, so these caves are called "Pandavar Guha." Near the pond are two Muniyaras. Another added attraction to this area is the lush growth of medicinal plants. Poonchira is also home to the Nilayara cave, which is located one kilometre away in Mukalanthanmudi. For a tourist, the cave itself is a wonder. It is possible for about 20 people to stand inside the cave at once. The inner mouth of the cave has a perennial stream flowing through it.
