Reviewed April 15, 2013

If you want to trek, do it early in the morning, post 2 pm, trekking route is closed.

The road to the view point is quite bad. Was surprised to see tea garden extending into the forest.

The view was good, might be in winter or early morning the view might be great, it wasnt one of the clear days we went to the view point.

I went for a trek to chembra peak with my 12 year old daughter. The trek though tiring was an amazing experience. It is a guided trek and our guide was really helpful and encouraged my daughter whenever she gave up exhausted. We reached the heart shaped lake on the top in and hour and half. The view from there was amazing. We could see Banasura Dam, Karapuzha Dam, Edakkal Mountains and Kalpetta clearly from the peak. Other areas were covered with mist. The downward trek was more tiring with sun now shining bright and hot. But we managed to complete the trek by half past one. A trek to remamber

Brilliant views... A great trekking adventure to have.. surrounded by plantations. Ideally reach there by 7 AM for capturing the best the scenery has to offer.

Not beeing told before, they wanted to charge 1000 ruppies for first person plus 200 rs ever next person plus 50 ruppies for each camera just to hike to the peak.
But there is a way through the tea plantage on the back side where they did not charge. We had to find that though on our own.
