Kuruvadweep, Kalpetta
(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.

  • best in here kutta vanji ( river rafting )
  • Not a good place... There is nothing special, just few trees which givea you a a feeling of you being in a jungle and taking a walk except which there is nothing else. The boat which takes you to this island is quite different, its a bamboo boat which is a fine experience. Apart from it there is a place where you can take a bath in the running water of the kabini river which surrounds the delta. Don't go there if you are looking for real fun and breath taking views..
  • Kuruva Dweep or Kuruva Islands, is one of the top tourist attractions of Wayanad. Once there you'd know why! After you enter the premises, there is a small walk to the jetty, where you board a bamboo raft to cross to the other side. Once on the other side, you are surrounded by trees, rays of sunlight falling on to you through the foliage. Its absolutely magnificent! As you slowly walk to the island group, you can't help but feel the wilderness. There is no testosterone involved, but place awe! The islands are usually very crowded and it's quite annoying actually. But if you wade through the flowing water, a few paces away from the crowd, but within the safe limits, you'd find yourself in a relatively secluded place. The current is quite strong and bed is uneven with rocks jutting out at random places, which adds to the fun. But it is not deep at all. The depth ranges from knee deep to around waist depth of an average adult. The islands are a feast for your eyes and your senses. You feel like you become one with all the elements of nature here. If you enjoy photography, then you sure are in for a treat! Worth visiting the place, only deal is stay away from the crowd, no too far away though!
  • Decent place to visit in Wayanad. They take you to place on bamboo raft. That's new experience. A bit over crowded.
  • Pathetic place :( nothing so exceptional or awesome..... Its not a real island, its just a green,forest land surrounded by a static stream of water, Large no of people Completely commercialized not worth visiting
