Category - Hill Stations

Pookkot Lake Wayanad

Location: 3 km south of Vythiri town, Wayanad district, north Kerala.
Tourist season: August to May.

It's not just a natural fresh water lake on the Western Ghats, the Pookkot Lake is the only one of its kind in Kerala. Located at 2100 metres above sea level the Pookkot Lake is a tourist's paradise. Boating facilities, a children's park and a spices and handicrafts emporium add to the attraction of the place.

Located 700 -2100 metres above sea level, Wayanad district, home to the Pookkot Lake, has some of the highest hill ranges in the State in its Vythiri taluk (a taluk is a sub division of a district). Winding hairpin bends and ridges make the journey up the ranges an exciting experience. With vast stretches of tropical forests and hilly terrain as yet untainted by civilisation, Wayanad is also home to the largest number of tribal settlements in Kerala.

Getting there:
Nearest railway station: Kozhikode, about 60 km from Vythiri.
Nearest airport: Karipur International Airport, Kozhikode about 23 kms from Kozhikode town.
