Banasura Hill, Kalpetta
(4/5 based on 260 reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Banasura Hill and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kalpetta vacation generator.

  • The dam is not the main highlight but the reservoir around it is really beautiful. The 20 minute speedboat ride costs Rs 750 and is the best way of getting close to the water. 
  • Banasura Dam is a wonder to be hold made by nature and without any concrete constructions surrounded by evergreen forest. A wonderful place for rest and relaxation. 
  • It's a scenic place with mountains on the back ground.however infrastructure is poor..approach road is poor and no space for parking..worth visiting this place..should do boating here..
