The Chembra peak, the highest in Wayanad District is a must see place. The journey to the top of the peak can be by foot or by trek and in both cases you will enjoy the beauty of the tea estates and greenery en-route. The heart shaped lake on the way is a rare attraction. From the top of the... More

A good trek.The guide from the VSS office was friendly and knowledgeable. It was impressive that they take count of your plastic bottles,wrappers etc and take a small deposit which will be refunded if you bring back everything. I think all tourist places should have such controls. The heart shaped lake at the top is great. The only thing I... More

This reason was told by our guide who led us to Chembra Heart Shape lake. Now, we are only allowed till Heart Shape lake which is almost 2.5 to 3km... More

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.
