from Kalpetta. This sanctuary is in the Wayanad region and is by and large known as Tippu’s stronghold. This is perceived as Tippu’s fortification on the grounds that Tippu utilized this place for putting away ammo. Subsequently, it picks up the name sultans battery.

This is accepted to have built amid the thirteenth century and filled in as a fundamental community for beneficial exercises. It is 24 km for Kalpetta, and now the shocking columns are relatively demolished yet pass on a quality of mystery. This is accepted to be the main fortress in Wayanad.

Edakkal Caves

I was more amped up for going by the Edakkal Caves and the Kuruvadeep island. Right off the bat, Edakkal originates from

‘Idai Kal’, which in Tamil means ‘In Between Stone’. The hypothesis is that, antiquated Tamil individuals of the age 500 BC were living in these caverns which was shaped because of the one shake that is stuck between two precipices leaving a huge space beneath it.

somebody exceptionally inspired by history, I was anxious to go there and look at the place for myself. The course to the Edakkal hollows was a decent one hour drive from Bathery . my sibling was sufficiently benevolent to drop us close to the passage of the pathway twisting upwards to the Edakkal hollows. While we went up however, we understood that it was as yet a lofty climb. The pathway was no less than 3 kilometers before we achieved the real surrender passage and the greater part of the young men had become tired by at that point.

I had discovered the perfect model to enhance my photography abilities: he would stance and I would snap, in the process continue figuring out how to take better pics. In any case, the issue was this was obviously pissing every other person off. We were simply not keeping pace with the others. After the Monk heaved a couple of swearwords at us, we unobtrusively took after whatever remains of the pack.

At last when we achieved the passage for the caverns, the vast majority of the folks were worn out and depleted.While they sat over to rest with a container of water close to the passageway, I could take note of that the passageway to the hollows was exceptionally well made and it looked as a quite cool setting.

There are a ton of rocks that have been sliced to frame staircases and there are some dubious pathways. Try not to take the elderly or those with low stamina to this place, they may discover it a dreary climb. There are additionally some extremely limit ventures to move without any railings, so it is prudent to be watchful here.

In the wake of moving for around twenty minutes there was a lofty stair way which prompt some amazing perspectives from the best.

Despite the fact that it wasn’t as colossal as it’s development, the place was extremely all around kept up and the legislature named manage clarified us compassionately about the importance of the place. It appears the place was occupied by Tamils approximately 2500 years back and they had cut a few engravings including those of the sun, individuals and devices. There was likewise an entrancing engraving beginning with “Pala puli..” written in Tamil on the divider. The guide revealed to us that it was about a man called ‘Nandhu’ who had executed numerous tigers and had them as nourishment in the caverns.

While it sounded intriguing, I had thought that it was difficult to trust that the content would really be 2500 years of age, since around then, adjusted Tamil letter sets were utilized and the words utilized here look more like the contemporary Tamil, that is directly utilized. Anyway, was the guide off-base? I don’t have a clue. Would be extraordinary on the off chance that somebody could clarify.

Kaduva Kuzhi

Kaduva Kuzhi is a cave that lies near Edakkal Cave, which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Wayanad district. Kaduva Kuzhi is yet to become a popular destination and tourists usually miss out visiting here while in Wayanad.

through this road, I saw a Eucalyptus plantation farm. I parked my vehicle here and started walking, breathing in the aroma of Eucalyptus and stroking the green grass along the path.

As you enter the Kaduva Kuzhi cave, the only thing that accompany you is darkness and cold. As you move forward, the silence is broken by the piercing voice of crickets and bats that fly away suddenly scaring you. Many of the passages inside has been blocked by mud falling down.

Chembra Peak

This was additionally moved toward a short notice at an end of the week. Following a feverish day in office, I got out by 6.30 and went to a room. I have perused a few online journals on treks to Chembra and had an unclear thought headed for cover. Subsequent to achieving room I had a power shower and gathered by a sack. It was at that point 7.00 pm and I knew I was late

Preparing by 6 am I looked at and boarded a transport to Kalpetta from where I knew I could go to Meppadi and after that to Chembra. Kalpetta to Meppadi is barely 45 minutes travel and from Meppadi we have to get an auto to come to the chembra woodland division office from where the passes are gotten alongside a going with direct. The trekking consent cost me Rs 500 and another 50 Rs for a camera. Presently a days Chembra trekking is permitted just till the heart moulded lake which is right around 600 foot underneath the best. I got some information about any odds of going ahead to the best, however, the authorities were exceptionally specific in turning the “NO” word all over denying my demand. In spite of the fact that it was permitted before the course is shut for the recent year. They created two stories for denying consent ( I don’t have the foggiest idea about any of it is valid). One was the risk of Maoist activists and besides for the nearness of the fowl named Swift which is considered as a terminated species. The winged animal lives and breeds just in high elevation and the highest point of Chembra are thought to be one such point where these feathered creatures are seen. Numerous other productive trekking goals in Wayanad is shut now for the Maoist locating. Pakshipathalam and Banasura slopes likewise have same sort of issues however they have saved the winged creature story for those two spots.


Vincent chettan was appointed to me as the guide. A lean man of 5.4 might be. Yet, was well disposed of the earliest starting point. He could talk numerous dialects and was a qualified nearby guide. Taking consent from the workplace we pushed ahead there is not really 400 meters from the workplace where we have to take a preoccupation with the trekking trail.

From the earliest starting point of this trail itself, the rise is steep and the rock makes it minimal more strenuous to cover. As the climb was extremely steep we were accomplishing a ton of tallness in the blink of an eye and I could feel the atmosphere evolving.

It began showering at that point and the fog was thick to the point that we were not able to see anything before us. We enjoyed a little reprieve for breath. I was truly heaving for breath as we took scarcely any breaks in the middle. Yet, the cool fog and delicate shower smoothened me and depleted out my exhaustion quick. I could hear noisy clamours of individuals drawing closer down the slope and Vincent chettan said it is of an understudy gather remaining in the quarters. From the extremely solid of them, I could make sense of it is a substantial gathering of individuals and as I didn’t have any desire to be a piece of the gathering I chose to move quick.

In any case, shockingly see was getting cleared and the lake gradually cleared and began giving the view. Presently I could show signs of improvement perspective of the heart state of the lake and I figured out how to get a few snaps. It was getting cleared as time passed and we sat tight nearly for 1 hour however it was worth holding up to see the powerful Peak from that position. Fog and mists gradually cleared to give a stunning perspective of the pinnacle. I profoundly lamented that I couldn’t climb the Mighty structure. From the sight itself, it was clear that the climb to the best will be a strenuous one which each explorer would love to take. It was devoured to the eyes to see rich greenery and a fabulous rise of the pinnacle.


In the wake of taking some more pictures, we chose to turn back. Strolling back to the returning trail I thought back and saw the Mighty pinnacle grinning at me. I chose that second that if by chance this trek revives whenever I will return to venture over it. Chembra top should be 2100 meters(6900 foot) above ocean level and there are some opposing references likewise in google that it is just 1850 mtrs. Despite the fact that we could climb just up to 6100 mtrs as rising to the best station is illegal at this point. In spite of the fact that there are slopes which are higher than Chembra in Kerala the height of the top towards the best most point makes it one of the hardest climbs in the Western Ghats. I felt extremely sad for not getting an opportunity to get the best. In the event that I made it no less than 2 years back, I could get the best and that would have been a genuine accomplishment. Subsequent to seeing the height of the crest in photos and in genuine any climber couldn’t avoid themselves from abandoning it unconquered. Such a stunner it is.
