    This is a tough trek. I have seen it described as moderate and even easy but I would say it is tougher than the two highest peaks in UK, which we have climbed recently. It's very steep verging on scrambling in places. On the way down we fell a few times, no harm done luckily. Having said all that it is definitely worth doing, the view from the top is stunning and you get a great sense of achievement once you're there. The cost for foreigners is quite high currently R3540 for up to 5 in a group, but if no foreigners appear at the payment counter at the same time as you, you have no choice but to pay full whack as a couple. Plus of course you have to pay for transport from wherever you are staying so not a cheap day out but well worth it.

    Highly recommended trek/ walk and must visit places near Wayanad. The trek takes about 2.5 hrs with a 6-yr old. Takes 20mons till entry point, 40 mins for the uphill trek till the highest point and 20 mins downhill back to parking
    The trek is steep but has many places to take a break, with greenery all around with great views. The view from the top is beautiful and the cave drawings are must see. Take the help of a guide to understand what they mean and they also take very good pics of you. Start early by 8-9am and be done by noon. Weekends are crowded with school and college groups..quite touristy entrance and a great place to shop for things back home in the form of banana chips chocolates eucalyptus oil and spices

    Come here early in the day as the number of entry tickets issued per day is limited. Also , best to arrive early and leave before maximum crowds reach here. One needs to climb down a bit to reach the waterfall. So conserve your energy for the way back up. Also, the entry ticket needs to be paid in cash and they expect exact change.

    Breath taking view of the Thamarassery Churam is the attraction here. Being on a steep hill road, it has its own dangers to the viewers who are reckless and unmindful of the traffic.

    A Nice Cute small waterfall falling from the top in to a small pool. You have to walk down through few steps in a muddy and rocky walkway. You can reach the bottom of the fall just by holding a single rope walking on a rocky slope’ which is uneven. But you can enjoy the fresh stream when you reach the bottom. Aged people can enjoy the falls from distance not getting down / Not risking. There are staffs available near the falls to help. Toilet facilities are available which is neat. You can enjoy lime soda at the shops, a must try.

    This waterfall is located a short distance from Banasura Sagar Dam. Parking is available near the Forest Division ticket counter. You do need to walk some distance from the parking to reach the falls. The path is undulating and not in very good condition. You need to be very watchful

    The tea garden trek followed by the stream and finally to the Banasura hill view trek is a quick 1-1.5 hr trek organised by Banasura Hill resort but it’s worth trying if you want to experience everything about the nature in such a short time.

    More than the dam, it's main attractions are the activities such as zipline, giant swing etc. Quite popular among school going guys and girls.

    Surrounding rose garden is also quite good.

    A bit away from the regular. The drive to the place is quite good. Once you reach, there is a car park ground and good rest rooms. Buy some tickets and off for the walk to the bamboo boats. The boats are operated by pulling around some ropes.

    There is a good attempt to limit foot fall. Some 500 odd visitors a day (including the east and west entrance).

    There is a small walking path with some swings on the way. A couple of bamboo bridges. The trees are labelled with the plant variety.

    You then reach a clearing where rocks bridge the river stream. Folks wade knee deep to reach across the rocks and indulge in some photography.

    More can be done to make it informative.

    The dam is breathtakingly beautiful, with superb greenery on one side & the sprawling water body on the other. The speedboat experience here is exhilarating!

    A good walk around the lake would take 30-45 minutes. Not very large crowds do the round. Good place for some photography.

    Boat rides - like at all venues - would be a longish wait. There is a small ice cream place. A park for kids - swings, slides, climbing setup.

    No need of taking the short diversion just to visit the lake. However it may fit in if you have time to spare before or after the long climb up the lakkidi ghat section.
