Bestowed with verdant hills, Wayanad offers a unique hiking experience. Towering at around 6,900ft, Chembra Peak is amongst the most popular trekking spots in Kerala. To get here, you have to reach the forest office located 5km from Meppadi town.
Once the permission passes for trekking are acquired, you can proceed towards the peak; it is always wise to seek prior permission for the same. Halfway to the peak, a heart shaped lake that never dries will catch all your attention for sure!
Locally named Hridaya Saras, it is also one of the most sought after destinations in Wayanad. Hiking around 2km from the lake, you will reach the Chembra Peak from where you can enjoy panoramic views of Vaithair, Karapuzha Dam and Banasurasagra Dam.
