“not a trekker's paradise but yet a nice peak”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I went there with friends. Since it was a small trek we decided to start our hike from Pothanplavu itself. After an hour or something the tar road turned to mud road and soon it turned to a typical village trail. Because the road comes really nearby the peak, its easily accessible by everyone and the garbage they put in. The hike is good, a bit tiring if you do it in one go. Make sure you keep some snacks with you because you wont get anything at the peak. We couldnt get much views from the peak as there was lot of mist. But still it was nice to walk in that chilly, foggy weather.

When we went to peak there were lot of local people already there, shouting and talking. So if you are expecting some scenic beauty go there, but if you need some silence, then I suggest choose some thing else.

“bliss !!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

it's an awesome place for trekkers in the North Malabar (Kannur). the mountains wearing green velvet and the clouds that pass by you... there are few words to describe this hill station... The site is mostly unexplored and hence you won't see any concrete buildings around. Wild elephants are often spotted in the area
