Good for locals from Kannur district. Not recommended for outsiders. Really bad roads and no activities after reaching there. Only one resort and food is really bad there as they don't have any competitors nearby.

The trek is really nice and the view after is worth the hard-working​. Very refreshing and green. Me and my friends enjoyed the place alot. Do wear sports shoes as it's an above average trek and little difficult also.
