Meppadi is situated about 10 km from Kalpetta and it is an important destination in the Kozhikode – Ooty road. A drive from Vythiri to this route will provide you a feel of Wayanad district. The charming Meppadi village with woods, verdant hillsides and coffee, tea, rubber and vanilla plantations are sure to capture your imagination. Vaduvanchal, another breathtakingly beautiful place nearby, too carries all the characteristics of the regions lying in the high ranges of Western Ghats. If you are visiting these places during spring, you may be confronted by an explosion of colours, thanks to the blooming flora of the region.
Vaduvanchal is ideal for trekking and it also offers activities like mountain climbing and angling. A trek through the forests here will lead to Meenmutty falls. Other interesting sites from here are Chembra Peak and Muthanga wildlife sanctuary.
