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.

      All things were superb. Good hotels with good food. Houseboat was most amazing specially fish fry dish on boat. Services across all places were good n staff were helpful too. I would also like to specially mention our Driver – Rajeev ,such a humble person,he added more fun to the trip. His driving is safe, superb and even the small restaurants or stops that he took for breaks were good . He was extremely co-operative, understanding and was genuinely helping us (communication with local peoples at shops) with whatever we were expecting in our trip to Kerala. View of tea garden was awesome.. All things were superb. Good hotels with good food. Houseboat was most amazing specially fish fry dish on boat.

      There was lot of chasing done by travel triangle for this. Bookings were arranged well in time. Well coordinated by Mamta and Sanjeev. Was not knowing about this earlier...worth the money and time spent. Green woods resort Thekkady is a very good property suggested by you. Do not recommend India vacation houseboat to any of your guests ... No activity planned for the evening...they were not switching on the AC till 9pm...worst part of the trip...could have been better managed

      The hotel in Cochin was not up to the mark. There was a strange smell in the whole hotel. Overall a nice trip, rest of all hotels were great. The driver was nice but one the first day, I expected us to cover some parts of munnar but except for spice garden nothing else was covered and we reached hotel at 3. No extra sites were covered even if we had time. Also in kumarkom also we reached our hotel at 3 after shikara ride. nothing else was covered. Although we enjoyed the stay at the hotel but since we had more time we could have covered other sites in kumarkom. munnar and kumarkom stay along with munnar's landscape.

      I had booked my kerala trip with Rasoone travels through Travel Triangle. Everything staring from pickup till the end of the trip was very well organised and executed. Thanks to Rasoone travels team for making my trip wonderful and memorable. Behaviour of cab driver throughout the trip was one of the important factor in making my trip more memorable. He took us to several places which were not even planned in itenirary and fully cooperated with us even when we got late due to kids.

    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.

    The entry fee for Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary is INR 110 for adults and INR 40 for children.

     

    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.
