Neelimala Viewpoint


Drives to Wayanad are full of many memorable vantage points that offer one mesmerising views of the valley below. The Neelimala viewpoint is easily among the upper echelon in the district. Here, one gets a pristine view of the great Meenmutti Waterfalls, causing people to throng to this destination in large numbers.

The trek up to the viewpoint is just as beautiful as the destination itself. You are surrounded by plants and flowers of all hues and colors along with the aroma of coffee giving you company. Small birds chirp merrily and urge you to the summit. Soon the setting changes and the mighty Western Ghats appear at their finest. The clouds seem closer and the valley appears to extend indefinitely from this point. From the mist covered slopes to the massive boulders forming interesting formations around you, you get to choose whichever slice of nature you wish to explore.

This area is today a popular picnic spot. People make the trek simply because of the aura of exclusivity surrounding the place. The white waters of Meenmutti crash into the ground with a deep roar that serenades every single visitor. It is a delightful feeling, as nature exists here in its purest form. A visit to Wayanad is incomplete without soaking in this magnificent sight.
