Adventerous, tough climb up 1.7 KM along the mountain. Breathtaking views all along and at the top. Be prepared for some bad roads unto the point where you start climbing the mountain though.

Take food..plenty of water and above all...good hiking boots. The climb is steep and hellish but the view makes up for all the discomfort suffered during the climb.

The place is brilliantly located near to tea plantations and place is known for the awesome trekking experience. U have to hire a guide to take the trek up the hill or else u can get a visiting pas which will cost u some 20 rupees per head. But it is highly recommended to take the trekking option. For that...

The hike is a bit tough, but totally totally worth it! The heart shaped lake is mesmerizing. Do not skip hiring the guide while getting a permit, it will make your hike much more easier. One of the must do things when in Wayand.

Very nice half day hike up to the lake. Didn't go all the way to the peak. Spectacular views despite the haze. Some steep climbs but achievable for most with a reasonable level of fitness. Can be reached in about 45 min from Kalpetta on a rickshaw.

The walk was good and our guide was very helpful. We were disappointed that we were only allowed to go half way up.

Worth getting there fairly early both to avoid the heat and watch the clouds lift off late morning. On the way you get Beautiful plantations, some nice jungle and then good views from a ledge. Didn't see any wildlife but apparently it's around and that's why you can't go to the top.
