Gavi is the 10th best tourist places in kerala and this place was almost unknown a few years ago. Now most people in Kerala meet Gavi for the hit Malayalam movie – Ordinary. The film told the story of a KSRTC bus staff, whose bus served regularly here. In the movie, this place made a strong impression similar to that of a character. The funny thing is that, although the theme revolved around there, very few scenes were filmed there. Many scenes, which customers took for Gavi, were filmed near Munnar.You guessed it! Nowadays people want to take the KSRTC bus to Gavi, to experience what they saw in the movie. There has been talk of travel circles that is one of the must-see destinations in India.
