How to Reach for Chambra Peak Trekking in Wayanad

Tucked right in between the Nilgiri hills of Tamil Nadu and the Vallarimala in Kozhikode the Chembra peak offers some spectacular views. This guide will help you understand how to reach the Chembra Peak of Wayanad. The nearest railway station is Kozhikode which is 79 km away. If you are flying in, the nearest airport is the Calicut International Airport which is 92 km away. From Kozhikode, there are several buses by both government and private operators that can take you to Kalpetta which is about 13 km.  From here you will need to take another bus to take you to Meppadi which is 7 km from the base. Alternatively you can also hire a taxi to take you directly to the base of the trek which begins at the tea gardens. If you want to park your vehicle at the base of the trek, you will be charged INR 20.

If you reach after 2 pm, you will be denied entry. The total trekking distance will be about 3.5 km one way. It is ideally a one-day trek but with the permission of the forest department you can also go for a two-day trek and explore the fauna of the region.

Since the forest department has an absolutely no littering policy, you are not allowed to carry plastic bottles or food on the trek. If you do you will be charged at INR 100 per bottle. After you come back from your trek the forest officers will take the count of the bottles again and refund your deposit. Before you start the trek you will also need to take a VSS guide to accompany you. Guide charges stand at INR 150.

The first 300 meters is pretty much a straight walk through tea estates and then there is a steep ascent through grasslands, forests, water bodies and serene landscapes which gives you a chance to revel in the natural wealth and biodiversity of the region. Because of the steep climb it is advisable not to go during monsoons although the forest does remain open throughout the year. The slushy trail coupled with the poor visibility can sometimes be a formula for quite a few slips or worse if you are not a seasoned trekker.

It will take you approximately 3-4 hours to reach the top of the peak. Trekking down will take you about half an hour to a maximum of 45 minutes. Camping here is not allowed as there is the danger of lurking wild animals and because of the sensitive ecology.

Is it okay to travel to Kerala during the off-season?

During the off-season, hill stations like Munnar are cool enough to travel to. However, places such as Alleppey and Kumarakom are pretty hot for a visit. Monsoon season does not see a lot of tourists but the lush greenery all around will ensure tourists will have a great time.

What to pack for Kerala?

With most airlines imposing a 20 kg limit on baggage, one must make sure to not bring excess baggage. Sunscreen and mosquito repellant are a must have, apart from airy cotton apparels and comfortable footwear. Also make sure that you leave enough space in your bags for taking back home souvenirs from the state.

Are there any restrictions on photography in Kerala?

Some temples in Kerala do not allow photography of the idols and the temple premises. Also, Indian government prohibits photography of bridges and hydroelectric projects in the state
