Chembra Peak Trekking in Wayanad
Wayanad’s Chembra Peak is the highest one in the region and lies 2100 meters above sea level. Being the highest one, the Chembra Peak is visible from almost any point in Wayanad. From the base of the peak you can witness the clouds gliding by the top and prepare yourself for basking in these clouds when you reach the summit. Being located in the famed Western Ghats whose reputation for the bespoke views precedes the name, Chembra peak Wayand Trekking is truly something that will leave you thrilled as well as enchanted. A weekend will offer you enough time to explore this magnificent work of nature. Trailing through the misty hills, with myriad patterns of nature unfolding in front of you, when you reach the top you can enjoy a surreal 360 degree view of the entire region nestled amongst the two adjoining states. On a clear day it offers the views of Kalpetta and Vythri and you can see the bright green tea estates staring back at you.
The first stop on your way to the top of the Chembra peak in Wayanad is the watch tower which you will reach in about 15-20 minutes after trekking for a kilometer. From here on your way to the top apart from the obvious beauty of God’s own country you will also come across a heart shaped lake known as “hridayathadakam”– a true gift of nature. It will take you approximately 1.5 hours to reach the lake after a trek of 2 km. It is said that this lake has never dried up and is a major tourist attraction.
From here on you will need to trek for another good 2 hours through 1.5 km to reach the Chembra Peak Wayanad. The last part of the trek is slightly towards the difficult side. The place is in full bloom post monsoon and is a treat to the eyes with its lush greenery and the clouds descending onto the hills. This makes it a perfect time as you can experience walking through the clouds and even though it isn’t raining you will get wet as you make your way through the clouds. The visibility on a cloudy day will however be about 100 meters.
The trek itself is a challenging one driving all adrenalin junkies. Despite the rugged terrain, the lush green panoramic views that the trail take you through is totally worth the climb. You will also come across several birds and animals that inhabit these forests. Deer, Elephants and guar are the common animals you see. If you are lucky you might as well chance upon a tiger but that is a very rare occurrence.
There are also several other interesting places to visit nearby like the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, Pookote Lake, Kanthanpara Watarfalls, Sochipara falls, Lakkidi, Meenmutty falls, Banasura Sagar dam, and Edakkal caves.
