Chembra Peak will open tomorrow

The main eco-tourism hub in Wayanad district, Chembra Peak will open on Monday. Passenger entry will be subject to covid restrictions. The Trekking hours will be from 7 am to 12 pm and visitation times are from 7 am to 3 p.m. Meppadi Range Forest Officer M.K. Samir said.

Visitors should follow the instructions of forest rangers and V.S.S guides. It was closed in 2018 following a Supreme Court ruling.

Chembra is the highest peak in the Wayanad district and lives up to its billing of being a picturesque location. It has managed to maintain its pristine nature over the years. Situated 2,100 m above sea level, this peak offers a breath-taking view of rare flora and fauna. One can come across many exotic species in these parts. The route to the peak itself has a brilliant view along with a heart-shaped lake, waterfalls, and lush greenery the whole way. It is a prime spot for trekking but prior permission needs to be taken before going on these treks. Guided tours are available and can help in enhancing the entire experience.
