  • Just a tree with hanging chain on a road side.. history is famous but nothing special from tourism point of view.. if you're passing by, have a look, but not worth going especially to see it..
  • Once during the colonial rule, Lakkidi was a secret route for local adivasis of Wayanad. An English engineer took help from a local chieftain called Karinthandan to identify the route through the ghats. Karinthandan helped him to find the shortest route to pass the ghat. Once the English engineer found out the way, he killed the adiviasi to take credit for finding the route. Later it was seen that the travellers who passed by the new route were haunted by the soul of Karinthandan. Hence a priest was called and in a chain his spirit was called, and tied in a small tree. It is believed that the chain grows along with the tree. This place has become a tourist spot attracting lot of tourists everyday.
  • Located at amazing point in Wayanad. Near to valley view point.
  • Chain Tree is a Ficus tree with a massive steel chain hanging on it, and is along the national highway near the Wayanad Ghat Pass at Lakkidi, in the district of Wayanad. This is a quick stop for many travellers from Kozhikkode to Wayanad and the chain on the tree has a (fictitious) story to tell.
  • Nothing special here just a tree, but you might experience beautiful fog
