Lakkidi View Point, Kalpetta

3.9
From Lakkidi View Point, behold the fantastic sight of the high mountain peaks, green valley, lakes, winding roads, and rainforest. You will need a car to reach this attraction, which sits just off the highway and offers little besides photo opportunities and the chance to admire the view. Try to visit on a clear day for the best experience and photography results, as rainy days tend to drop fog across most of the landscape.

  • The best viewing point I encountered in Wayanad. Spectators can reap great scenic rewards when stopping here – the kind of views that lights up one’s face and broadens one’s horizons! The mountains and the unreal silhouettes are an absolute feast for the eyes. You'll also spot many monkeys at this viewing point, who will do all they can to snatch your belongings that you have handy, or even in the car. So ensure you don't leave your car window/door open. Over here, watch the fog roll in and out, cars drive past on the bendy road, and the lush green mountains that stretch out as far as the eye can see!
  • Nice view point from high elevation, looking down you will see cast area of the slopes of the hills and beautiful view of the twisting and winding road with vehicles moving up and down the hill. Be careful when you have to make a U-Turn to back track your way after seeing the view point. There is no place to park the car or turn around.
  • Best tine to visit would be before 10. There will be less traffic and you can stop the vehicle for the quick glance. This place offers spectacular view of the mountain ranges and the road curves. Must visit place when you are in Wayanad.
  • Great opportunity for photo enthusiasts for bulb mode photography. Bonus, if you can drive or ride all the way down and come back and enjoy the thrill. PS. Only experts should drive or ride.
  • Place is very good. There is only one hairpin curve to watch. But the hills covered with green is the main eye catchy thing. I suggest visit this place early in the morning. So you will get to enjoy ride in dense fog. Caution: this view point is on the main highway. Becareful about passing vehicles.
