chembra peak: Highest peak in Wayanad



Hike up the rugged terrains of the Chembra Peak located 2,100 metres above sea level on the southern part of Wayanad. Chembra is the tallest peak in Wayanad and is an ideal area for trekking. There is a heart shaped lake on the way to the top of the peak, which is believed to have never dried up, is a major tourist attraction here. With permission from the Forest Department, one-day treks and two-day wildlife treks are possible. You can have group treks of up to ten people or hike on your own, accompanied by a guide.
Located in the Chembra Hills of Wayanad’s Western Ghats, the Chembra Lake is a heart shaped water body situated halfway up the hill. Considered as a difficult activity, one can reach here within 2 hours of trekking through the dense forests and grasslands.
Arrive at the base camp near Chembra around 9am and start the guided trek towards the lake at around mid-morning. Ascend through rugged terrains, reach the lake by late morning. After reaching Chembra lake, the trail will hit a ridge and rear up at a steep angle all the way to the peak.
On arrival at the peak, enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding and relish in a packed lunch that can be arranged by us at an extra cost. Post lunch, trek back to the base camp. The descent from the peak is slippery.
Activity : Trekking to Chembra peak in wayanad
NOTE : Currently, it is not possible to trek till the summit because of restrictions imposed by the forest department. We start the trek from a slightly lower point, and go until the lake presently.
