A very nice place to engage in a leisurely walk in the water, through the woods and a nice bath in the cold running water. A wonderful experience overall.

This place is on an island .Some 30-45 min distance from Kalpetta and good when you have ample time as you have to walk enough to reach this place. Nice island views around and ideal for a day's visit.

The place will open around 9.30pm only, no need to hurry in the morning. Forest guard will do a routine check in the island before letting the visitors in as a precaution against wild animals mainly elephants. literally spent more than 1 hr waiting for the ticket counter to open. A short bamboo raft ride will take you to the island from mainland. If you love nature and its beauty this place is for you. Lush green forest along with morning fog place is a paradise for photographers. Small trek will take you to a stream where you will end your journey. I heard about few other islands connected to this when asked about that guards informed due to some drowning accidents entry to other small islands are banned by forest department, it’s sad.

lovely place but the weather was bit hot and humid still water made it cool
natural rive crossing and some harsh slippery rock and sun made things difficult but still nice place to enjoy

If you love nature, then this is a must visit place. To be frank, there is nothing much ot do here, but set in an island in the middle of Kabini river, this place is one of the most tranquil places you would fins in Wayanad. This place is also good for bird watching. The bambook raft ride to the island is unique. You will be ankle deep in water and the raft is not rowed. Instead there is a rope fro one side to another and the raft is guided by using these guide ropes.

Rainly season is not the best season to visit this place, because it can get very slippery
