Chembra, Kalpetta

4.3
Trek up Chembra for a memorable hike through evocative scenery. All hikers must receive permission from the main office before beginning the walk, so make sure you pay a visit there first. At the office, many trekkers take the opportunity to hire a guide for the walk. The ascent takes around three hours to complete; along the way, you'll pass one of the main attractions: a heart-shaped lake that locals say has never dried up. The top of the 2,050 m (6,730 ft) peak rewards with extensive views of the Western Ghats. Plan to visit Chembra during your Kalpetta vacation using our convenient Kalpetta travel route builder .

  • Nice view throughout and a great place to visit. In rainy season not suggested to visit as the roads are not good...! 😊
  • very good place and location. very beautiful experience to see and enjoy the beauty of nature. Greenery around there and very charming scenic views. VERY GOOD CLIMATE AND PLEASANT ATMOSPHERE. VERY BEAUTIFUL NATURE.
  • good place to go if you like trekking. difficulty of trekking is moderate . Only 200 people per day is allowed for trekking and a group(max of 20 members) will be charged 780 as trekking fee. The heart shaped lake on the top of the mountain is amazingly good.
  • This was one the place I wanted to visit the most but apparently it was closed by the Kerala Forest Department. Thankfully they'd put up a banner to the road leading to the place. Hope they'll reopen it soon. If you're planning a visit do enquire from a local tourist guide or hotel travel desk.
  • What a hill it is!!!. If you love trekking you must walk here. Entries are limited to 200 person per day. So reach early and enjoy the mesmerizing beauty up.
