Great place to visit. The views of the valley below is great. Sometimes in the morning when the fog is there you get beautiful views I was told.

I remember the time when I went to Lakkidi View Point. It was in the first week of October 2012, after the monsoons had come down. Lakkidi offers the best views during the morning hours in this season and there's absolutely nothing that'll beat it.

I left from Kozhikode (Calicut) to the view point on my bike and reached there at around 6 am. It was just before the sunrise. You will be mesmerized by the varied hues on the valley painted by the morning Sun as it rises. It is quite a breathtaking view. Not to mention the white clouds cascading down the mountains. I'd suggest bikers to take a flask full of hot coffee, go there early in the morning and watch the sunrise as you sip the coffee. It is really the most perfect way to start a beautiful day. Especially if you make it a romantic date.

PS:- You can't actually watch the sunrise as you'll be facing the south west direction. But the hues on the valley during the sunrise are what that makes the trip totally worth it.

PS2:- Please take a DSLR camera. The view deserves it.

Lakkidi view point is the topmost point at Wayanad ghats. It is the point where Wayanad district starts. All tourists coming from Calicut will be stopping and will have a view of the serpentine road which they have covered in the trip to Wayanad. Early morning is the best time to have the majestic view with the blanket cover of misty fog. We came from Bangalore and stayed at CoffeaAroma resort which is around 10 Kms from Lakkidi view point. A must watch spot innWayanad

Nice View, Nice ice creams. The view shows the NH212 winding down towards Calicut (Kozhikode) through the green forested western ghats
