Idukki district, especially the hilly areas of Idukki is popularly known as highrange. But there is no clear definition for this term or any specific demarcation of the land as highrange. In general we can call the upland places which are above 600 meter as Highrange. Based on this concept all parts of Devikulam, Udumbanchola, Peermade taluks and the Idukki-Kanjikkuzhy village in the Idukki taluk are included in the Highrange region.
