Pakshipathalam

Wayanad, the northern hill district of Kerala, is covered with dense, moist deciduous forests teeming with elephants, tigers, jungle cats, civets, bison, peacocks, woodpeckers and numerous other animals and birds. In the sylvan solitude of this land, perched at a 1740 m above sea level is Pakshipathalam, a picturesque sleepy little place. 

Pakshipathalam is 7 km northeast of Thirunelli, which is about 32 km from Mananthavady, and about 66 km from Kalpetta, Wayanad district, North Kerala. The altitude at this place is 1740 m above sea level.

The very name of the place refers to its large population of birds. Here virgin forests, rivulets and steep hills together offer challenging avenues for trekking. A cave which rishis (saints) are believed to have used for meditation in ancient times, has become a major attraction for tourists. Close by is Kuruvadweep, an island well known for its rare ecology. 

Located 17 km from Mananthavady, Kuruvadweep is a 950 acre stretch of evergreen forests on the banks of the Kabani River, and home to rare species of birds, orchids and herbs.
