Inspirock Rating:
2.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web
Escape the city and head to Kuruvadweep, a group of peaceful islands nestled within 384 ha (950 ac) of lush forest. Take a relaxing bamboo raft ride down the river and jump off at one of the main islands, where you can trek through the vegetation to hidden lakes. Keep your eyes peeled for rare orchids and migratory birds on their journey. Cool off in the refreshing lakes and sit and admire the natural beauty of these islands. Entrance to the islands can be restricted throughout the rainy season and when wild elephants are in the area. Bring sunscreen and pack plenty of water for your visit, but note that food is restricted within the reserve. Arrive early to avoid the crowds. Kuruvadweep is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Kalpetta Edition.

  • This is an island near the city. It is not crowded and has less visitors. It's a nice activity to spend some romantic time together by the water. 
  • The forest walk through the bridges made up of bamboo trees was awesome. this island is home to rare species of birds, orchids, herbal plants etc. this is a wonderful nature's gift to Wayanad.

  • A very beautiful natural forest reserve, laden with trees, rivers. Best to come with a private car. Public transportation is quite difficult. Entrance closes at 430pm, so best to arrive early. There are places to swim and wade, and river crossings on rafts. If you are into nature and trees, this is a great place to come to. Plastic bottles needs some deposit to bring in, to ensure one bring it out again.
  • Kuruva dweep lost its charm, now Its crowded tourist place, with spoiled nature.
  • Absolutely skip the place if you are planning to visit during summer unless you want to get a heat stroke!! I visited this place a few days back and was carrying only a bottle of water which was a big mistake. I had people visiting the place asking me for water as they felt sick due to the sweltering heat. There is nothing to see or do except maybe take dip or wet your feet in the dirty stream that flows through the place. Also it's not a typical island... AVOID!!!
  • Nice clean place for a leisurely walk. Carry a couple of bottles of water and wear good shoes.
  • It is an amazing tourist attraction..!! the place is full of greenery ..!! and beautiful views..!! this place is heaven for those who love nature..!!
