Breathtaking views

This places is hard to miss when travelling from Karnataka to Kerala via bandipur forest. This section of the ghats is truly mesmerizing. But be careful of the mischievous monkeys

This is best to visit on a clear day. It was very crowded, with people running back and forth across the highway, where cars rarely yield - keep a close eye on your children. The view was great, though there is a sheer drop from the road - so be careful if you are afraid of heights!

The Lakkidi viewpoint is a spectacular viewpoint that is a must visit if you are touring Wayanad. The roads leading to the viewpoint and the view from the top is quite good the effort to drive down or up the winding mountain roads is worth it. For folks that are sensitive to winding roads, ensure you have a puke-bag handy!... More

The roads are insane here! A lot of hairpin bends which make a great photo. The view is incredible, sometimes it's very misty and cloudy. There are a lot of monkeys also :)

This is a stopover near to Vythri and entrance to Wayanad district. An amazing and fantastic view point where the view of Thamarassery Churam is available. Good for photography. Lot of monkeys are roaming around, they may snatch your hand. Can experience mist or fog here.

The lakkidi viewpoint offers surreal views when you visit during the onset of monsoons. Be aware of monkeys which sit on the railings ( even in pouring rain)!

This is a very beautiful view point just a short distance from the Vythiri village. If it is not cloudy, the view of the setting sun could be captivating. The winding road down below leading to Calicut is stunning. Visit this place for the sunset. Be prepared for some traffic chaos at this time as the road is constricted due... More
