The Lakkidi view point is not too far from Vythiri and just after the Wayanad gate on Calicut NH . YOu can enjoy the views by just stopping by on the NH .

Well travelling only for seeing this place is not worth it. But, if you are passing by worth giving it a shot.

Well, to me there was nothing extraordinary about this place apart from the fact that there were number of monkeys and still people were getting down from their cars, enjoying their view, getting photos clicked and being fearless. Near to pookot lake, this place will give you a view that can capture as much greenery as possible all around. That... More

Every time I am in wayanad, I visit the view point. The experience varies based on what time of the day you visit. Views are awesome during morning and evening hours so avoid going in afternoon.

If the weather is not misty, the view is great... though a bit farther from Kalpetta, but worth a visit. There's railed pavement along-side the road and spacious road enabling people to park their cars throughout the stretch.

This is literally the point from where the ghat section starts to begin the decent towards kochi. The view from here is fantastic. Depending upon the weather the view ranges from good to great to fantastic to surreal. It is good idea to go there and just soak in the natural beauty all around.
