Kuruvadweep, Kalpetta

2.0
#7 of 11 in Nature 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.
