Transportation[edit]

Road[edit]

The village, located 8 km from Pattambi on the Pattambi-Pallippuram Road, and can be reached by road and rail. The road from Pattambi forks in two directions at the Muthuthala junction. One road goes to Pallippuram and the other one reaches the state highway to Perinthalmanna at Trithala Koppam junction. A diversion from the nearby town Parakkad also connects to the Perinthalmanna Shoranur state highway at Sankaramangalam.

Rail[edit]

Kodumunda is the only railway station in Muthuthala, which is en route to Kozhikode on the Shoranur–Kozhikode railway line. Only a few passenger trains halt at this station, so the preferable means to reach Muthuthala is by road. Pattambi is the main railway station nearby where most of the trains do have a stopping.
