Kuruvadweep, Kalpetta

3.1
#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.

  • A great place to experience the nature up close. Closed during June - November season as the river overflows, making it impossible to reach the island on bamboo rafts. Be careful with your kids while you are there as it's surrounded by water all around.
  • Place of natural beauty. Highly recommended due to its experience. Usually closed during monsoon season due to safety reasons. Make a call before going to the place.
  • 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.
  • I read the review before going there and was so excited. But you have access only to 2 islands. We started at 5 am from Sultan Bathery to reach this place. They will issue only 200 tickets per day. So if you reach by 7 am. You will not get the ticket. Can you believe it? You have to.
