Wayanad with its natural grandeur & rich natural resources offer several opportunities for adventure tourism.
The Chembra peak which is visible from Vythiri Meadows is the highest peak in Wayanad at 2100 m. above mean sea level. Trekking to this peak is one of the most risky tourist endeavours in Wayanad. It takes almost a day but is worth the effort as the scenic beauty of Wayanad is visible from the top of Chembra Peak. The trek is very challenging and thrilling as it is a very steep and slippery way to the top of the hill. The blue eyed water in the lake at the top of the hill never dries up even in the peak of summer and all through the trek the whispering of the flowing spring which sprouts from the top of the hill accompanies you.
