How to Reach for Chembra Peak Trekking in Wayanad

Tucked right in between the Nilgiri hills of Tamil Nadu and the Vallarimala in Kozhikode, Chembra peak offers some spectacular views. This guide will help you understand how to reach the Chembra Peak of Wayanad, and where to enjoy Chembra peak trekking. 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. For those wondering how to reach chembra peak by car, make sure to have a map or your GPS ready, although it is a fairly straight road. If you want to park your vehicle at the base of the trek, you will be charged INR 20. It is a good idea to go to chembra peak by car, since you can reach right at the base of it.

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. Chembra peak wayanad trekking is a must do when here.

      Overall trip was very good. Had good driver who knew all the spots and very well .Just on second last day in Kochi when we wanted to do shopping. He left us at hotel saying that he had to go somewhere. So we did shopping on our own by taking auto/ola/uber. Also Alleppey hotel was the best!! The view from hotel was mesmerizing. Overall very good value for money and worth a visit.Would cherish this trip!!! Munnar, Thekkady and Alleppey hotels.

      I was on vacation of 5 days.My first two days were in Munnar,hotel provided (Elysium) there was excellent so was the my 3rd day at Thekkady at Coffee Route hotel.Driver Mr Suresh was a gentleman and provided excellent service.My 4th day was in Alleppey in house boat I will give them 2 star out of 5.House boat was not a good experience, Cleanliness was a major issue bed ,towel,was not up to the mark.Food was very avg ,who offers tea/coffee with only glucose/Parle G type biscuits.We requested a cake for marriage anniversary and they arranged on payment basis which is fine but they charged 600 for such a bad cake that we two couldn't take a bite of it.My 5th day was at Kochi where hotel denied stay to us and told us your travel agent hasn't paid the hotel charges.I tried at the number provided to call in emergency and to my wonder the rep who picked the phone told me ,I m not the person concerned and this is no wrongly given to you.As I was with my wife and 8 month old baby I had no option but to request hotel please allow us stay i will make the payment I to you .However with delay but travel triangle team resolved the issue. Stay in Elysium hotel.Staff was very cooperative .They saw we are with baby they came forward and took the baby so that we can had our breakfast easily.

    FAQ's of Wayanad

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

    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.

    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

     

    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.
