This beautiful hill station is just one hour drive from Kannur. There are a few tiny sized resorts here but no big ones. The infrastructure is just being put in place here. Kannur is the only district where one can go to a beach,check out a wild life sanctuary, sail on the serene back waters all in one day.

Paithalmala is the one of the best place in kannur , it is 70 km away from thalassery and you can reach there via tly-anjarakkandy-irikoor-kudiyanmala or via tly-kannur-thaliparamba-kudiyanmala. It is just 6 km away from kudiyanmala. You can start your trekking from govt guest house near there and around 2 km to reach the watch tower. There you can see view point,suicide point , aruvies. But the real beauty of paithalmala you can find at the very top of the hill and it is 5 km away from the watch tower. One side is around 4000 feet hight and another side you can watch karnataka forest. Evening is awesome because of the koda and very cold atmospheir. Its much better for trekking and camping.
