This hill is full of herbal(mooligai) plants. There is another route from Kadaladi,to reach Parvathamalai, which is shorter and when compared to Thenmathimagalam route. Thenmathimagalam route is lenghty but easier to reach the top of Parvathamalai. However,both routes joins at a common point, and it is a single route from there which leads to Lord Mallikarjunaswamy temple on top of the hill.
