Chembra Hills:

The hiking trail to Chembra Hills starts from Meppady in Wayanad district. As you hike up the path of 14 kilometres winding into the mountains of tea plantations with puffs of misty clouds for company, you climb and reach the peak at 2100 metres above sea level before you know it!

Agasthyarkoodam Peak:

Named after Agasthya Rishi who made the peak his abode for the peace and tranquillity it offered, the peak is at a height of 1868 metres above sea level. The trek up this peak takes you through dark green forests which transports you back in times when walking was the only way to travel. As you reach the peak where a full size statue of Agasthya is present, you get to see many medicinal plants along the way. Ayurvedic experts be ready to fill your bags!

Periyar Tiger Reserve:

There is an organised trail at this place as it is a reserve forest in its original form. Trained guides accompany the trekkers and the trek involves a time of around 36 hours. So an overnight stay at the forest is mandatory. A brush with wildlife during this trek is a given!


This trail favours ornithologists. It is in a wildlife sanctuary with a mind boggling 160 varieties of birds and several types of butterflies. Hikers can also trek on the outskirts of the sanctuary. The interior trek through the dense jungle is for the more ardent and ambitious bird lovers!

Pythal Mala:

For a short trek, you can opt to go the 6 kilometre stretch to the hill top of Pythal Mala. The beautiful flora and fauna up the path bowls you over as much as the amazing view at the top of the hill!
