Chembra peak is not allowed for visitors due to some wildlife mandatory, but up to the half way of peak which is 4500 ft where there is a beautiful and sensual heart shaped Lake. I wondered how such a lake was formed in this intersection and became more interested hearing the specialty of it. Nobody has heard the lake been... More

We completed the Chembra Peak in about 3 hours. The cost is rs. 1500 for a group for foreigners, which is a bit experience. We lucked out and met a couple at the ticket booth and decided to join with them. This includes a guide, who doesn't speak much English. It gets hot and busy as the day goes on,... More

Scenic surroundings, picture perfect views, a heart shaped lake on the top of the peak and a good 4 hour trek. A must visit place when you are in Wayanad.

One day of walking up the mountainside assisted by the guide of the Tourism department we reached the heart shaped pool in a few hours. Surprisingly, the plateau on the top was treeless and quite grassy. Lovely wind and weather gave us a superb and unforgettable time in Chembra peak in Wynad!!

My friend and I went there, and when we got to the tickets office we found out that in the last 2 years you can't climb to the top of the mountain! We were allowed to climb up to the Heart Shape Lake, which was nice, but don't except anything spectacular… And the price is very expensive, 1500 rupees! Think... More
