Banasura Hill, Kalpetta

4.1
#5 of 16 in Parks in Kalpetta
Hike Banasura Hill for an adventure through dense forests at an altitude of 2,030 m (6,660 ft). You'll encounter numerous waterfalls as you head towards the summit for a spectacular view of the entire area. It may take about three hours to reach the summit, so carry extra food and water with you, and dress warmly for the mountain climate. At the foot of the hill, you can also find India's largest dam. Besides examining the tropical vegetation, you may also encounter monkeys, deer, wild boars, and elephants as they roam the forest.

  • This is not different Hill this is same Banasura Dam. I don't know why people put this as "Banasura Hill". In the picture these are the steps by which you will reach at the Banasura Dam.  more »
  • When reaching Banasura dam parking, you can go from there uphill by foot ( 6,7 minutes ) or take a mini bus for only 10 Rs. There are jeeps to take you uphill too,but cost much more then mini bus. Whe...  more »

  • Excellent place for trekking but it may be difficult for few people. Please be prepared before trekking, carry nesassary items which may be required you while trekking. It will provide excellent experience of trekking. All the very best.
  • An amazing trekking location. One of the tallest peak. Has great view. The trekking in parts are difficult. Please carry enough water, fruit, biscuits with you. Please wear loose and comfortable dress. Please use trekking shoes or good shoes. Restrooms available but it is not well maintained. Parking space available and the changes are reasonable.
  • Long walk,lots of stairs---save your energy by spending 10/ per person to ride a bus to the dam on the top; same for returning. Now you have the vast, island-dotted reservoir where boat ride is possible but not much attractive. On the other side you have a green slope upto the parking area. Walk leisurely with the wind inswinging your hair or sit somewhere along just to laze. Late afternoon in this part of North Kerala is really pleasant. Just chill out at the end of a busy day travelling with your family.
  • Nice place to visit but it's on your own risk.
  • Best season to visit for adventurous trecking is in monsoon june to nov
