Chembra is the highest peak in Wayanad district and lives up to its billing of being a picturesque location. It has managed to maintain its pristine nature over the years. Situated 2100 m above sea level, this peak offers a breath-taking view of rare flora and fauna. One can come across many exotic species in these parts. The route to the peak itself has a brilliant view along with a heart shaped lake, waterfalls and lush greenery the whole way.

Edakkal caves:

Etchings found on the walls of this caves have drawn the serious attention of archaeologists and historians worldwide. With atleast three distinct sets of petroglyphs, the earliest thought to date back over 3000 years, it is assumed that the Edakkal caves have been inhabited at various stages in history.

Sentinel Rock Falls :

Locally known as Soochipara, this is a very porular leisure destination. While younger visitors love to romp in the pool formed at the foot of the fall.


Located deep within the forests of the Bhramagiri hills at an altitude of more than 1700 meters, Pakshipathalam is a formation of large boulders, some as tall as two storey buildings. The deep caves found here are home to a wide variety of birds, animals and distinctive species of plants. The journey involves an arduous 7km trek through thick forest commencing at Thirunell

Thirunelli temple: This temple was dedicated by the creator Lord Brahma to propitiate the presserver, Lord Vishnu. The idol is in the form of chathurbhuja. Often reffered to as Dakshina Kasi(The Kasi of South), this temple draws pilgrims from all over, primarily for ancestral rites.

Papanasini, Thirunelli: A short walk from thirunelli temple is the clear mountain spring known as Papanasini. A ritual dip here is beleived to wash one away of all worldly sins.
