#6 of 16 in Parks in Kalpetta
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. By using our Kalpetta visit planner , you can arrange your visit to Kuruvadweep and other attractions in Kalpetta.

  • Best place for trekking / walking through the place is a good experience. The place is neat and clean. Bamboo rafting also good. The place is good for kids and families. Lots of places to see inside the island. The place is nature friendly. Walking through the roads is a great joy as there are so many trees around the way. Testing huts are there which are made of bamboo.
  • Don't go to this place expecting a trekking experience. It is only a small walk through a forest on an island. You can take a bath at the designated spots. The entry fee is 90 rs. They allow only 200 people for the entire day, hence try and reach the place by 9:00 on a weekend so as to be assured of an entry ticket.
  • This place is an another highlighted tourist place in Wayanad. People will have a micro journey through bamboo made boat between two islands. Then they can take a walk through and can play in the river. Excellent looks around with real green.
  • Nice spot when you are panning visit to Wayanad. We need to get the boat from the place were we take tickets to reach the island. The forest people pulls a rope and along with the flow of water the boat will move. It's completely man powered. The island have many different places to take bath in water. We can find our private place after spending some time there. Really nice experience
  • This is a big island in the river Kabini. It is a protected forest and uninhabited. Access possible from both the banks. Ticket to be purchased for the visit and includes the fare for the bamboo ferry to cross the river. It is a long walk in the island to reach a place where you can get into water. Beware, no food items are allowed and no plastics. You are forced to leave them at the cloak room. There were people with kids who struggled because of this. If you speak Malayalam then you can negotiate !! The last entry in at 1:00 pm and you can stay till 3:00. Plan your arrival time. Carry your bathing suit and eat something before you take the ferry. Of course gets very crowded on weekends and holidays. Hint : return to the same point where you disembarked for the ferry ride back, there are 2 ferry points and they go to opposite banks !!
