The Paithalmala trek is a serene escapade into the heart of Kerala's natural beauty, nestled in the district of Kannur. Unravel the expanse of the Western Ghats as you embark on this mesmerizing journey towards the hilltop, located at a height of 1372m above sea level. The trail, approximately 6 km long, takes you through a diverse terrain that encompasses evergreen shola forests, grasslands, and mesmerizing streams.

Whether you're an experienced trekker or a newbie adventurer, Paithalmala trek offers an experience that caters to all. The trek begins from the base of the hill and gradually inclines towards the peak. While the initial part of the trail is a mild walk, the later sections involve a moderately challenging hike.

The Paithalmala trek is more than just a journey - it's a tryst with nature's unspoiled beauty. From the rustling of the leaves to the chattering of birds, every aspect of the trek enchants your senses and leaves you craving for more. At the peak, you are rewarded with a panoramic view of Coorg's lush green valleys and the vast expanse of the Arabian Sea in the horizon. The experience gets even more spellbinding during the monsoons when the whole landscape comes alive with a verdant green cover.


Scenic Trek: The trek offers a stunning visual treat of the surrounding green mountains, lush forests, and vibrant wildlife.

Flora and Fauna: This region is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including many rare species of birds, making it a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers.

View from the Peak: Reaching the peak is rewarding as you get to witness an awe-inspiring panoramic view of the surrounding landscapes - the rolling hills, the expanse of the Arabian Sea, and sometimes even the mist-laden valleys of Coorg.

Historical Significance: The trek route also takes you past an ancient Shiva temple that holds great historical significance. This offers a perfect blend of adventure and culture.

Camping Options: For those wishing to extend the adventure, camping facilities are available near the peak, giving you the chance to experience a night under the stars in the heart of this enchanting wilderness.

All-Year-Round Trek: Paithalmala is an all-weather trek. Each season provides a unique charm - the vibrancy of the monsoons, the fresh cool air of the winters, or the pleasant warmth of the summers.

Ease of Access: The trek is easily accessible from major cities and towns of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, making it a convenient weekend getaway.

Embark on the Paithalmala trek to delve into the splendors of nature, soak in the tranquility, and experience an unforgettable adventure!
