Lakkidi View Point, Kalpetta

4.1
#1 of 10 in Sightseeing in Kalpetta
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Lakkidi View Point and many more Kalpetta attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Kalpetta tourist route planner.

  • If you are visiting Wayanad, don't give this view point a miss. Traveling from Bangalore (300 km) you do not realize that rubric the entire journey, you are actually on the Deccan plateau. Only when you reach this view point, you discover that there is a world 3200 ft beneath you and a horizon that meets the sea. Study the topography of the region in advance to understand how the plateau actually merges with the Western Ghats range and rolls down to the planes of breathtakingly green Kerala and its coastline and the beaches. Visitors tend to litter the area with plastics, which is s pity .
  • Brilliant view! The only problem is the parking. There is no dedicated parking space as such. You will have to park by the side of the road. Finding a spot is task since all the passer by vehicles usually stop by to take pictures, hence pretty crowded too.
  • When I visited last time, it looked no less than paradise. Completely filled with fog with almost no visibility. Must halt and enjoy the view. You can get a live sketch at a nominal cost.
  • One of the best natural experience...... best time is morning or by 2 to three... by 3 to 4 pm you can go through clouds
  • Great view, surrounded by mist. It was drizzling when we went and no visibility of the road below. Later mist got cleared and it was another beautiful view.
