<< Kerala Attractions

Wayanad holds plenty of attractions for the discerning tourist.Chembra Peak soars upto 2100 metres and is the tallest summit of the Wayanad region. It is popular amongst tourists for the simple reason that it provides some spectacular views of the surrounding area from its zenith.Soochipara fall is 22 km from Kalpetta and is perhaps the most attractive one around. The three layered fall, also known as the Sentinel Rock Falls, is situated amidst thick equatorial forests and you will need to undertake a 1-2 km walk to reach it.Banasura dam is located in the close vicinity of the Karlad Lake and is an excellent base to start off a trekking expedition to the Banasura peak.

The caves are situated at a distance of 12 kms from Sultan Bathery and can be reached by trekking.Apart from the engravings, the view from atop is also splendid.
