You will never miss those vast ranges of mountains as backdrop to the premises of Thirunelli temple in Wayanad. And you’d tremble slightly when your guide tells you, that the destination lies somewhere on the crest of one of them. Impossible!

The place is located about 32 kms away from Mananthavady
