It’s often said that behind every successful man, there will be a lady. It holds true for many guys out there. However, Is this golden rule applicable only to mortals? If you go to Thampuran Para in Thiruvananthapuram, you can see Thampuratti Para bestriding the former. Hence, it seems the rule can be applied universal for mortals and immortals to some extent.

Thampuran Para and Thampuratti Para are two unexplored hillocks near Vembayam in Thiruvananthapuram. It can be designated as the lone trekking centre (or maybe the only one with a trekking centre tag in the city outskirts). I visited the place on one fine rainy evening. You have to climb the steps in the first phase and steep rocks in the second phase to reach Thampuran Para. Thampuratti Para lies just above the Thampuran Para, accessing it needs a little trek.

The place, being one of the top points in Thiruvananthapuram gives a 360 degree view of most parts of the capital city. You can even see the misty clouds flocking below you. To give you company, there are many freaky simians. Feeding them is not advisable for should be at your risk.
