Situated in the mountain ranges of Western Ghats bordering Kerala, with altitudes ranging from 700 ft to 2100 ft. Kakkadampoyil village, an unexplored hill station 50 km away from Kozhikode city and 26 km from Nilambur, is surrounded by forests, misty hill ranges, deserted roads and untouched waterfalls (Kozhippara waterfalls). It makes the area worth a visit.
The picturesque scenery and terrain will definitely thrill your mind and cloud topped mountains will take you back to nostalgic rhymes that you once chanted in your childhood. Only the chirps and songs of the birds in the morning will already help you to get out of bed. The place is a boon for anyone who looks for a pristine place to chill out.
Kakkadampoyil belongs to the Nilambur forest range and borders Malappuram district. One of the major destinations is the ‘Kozhippara waterfalls’. The Forest Department has made it an eco-tourism project. The ‘Valamthode waterfall’ is in the vicinity of Kakkadampoyil Kuravan Puzha and has a number of cascades in the river which are safe. On the other bank of the Kuravan Puzha is the Pantheerayiram forest of Nilambur. Bisons and elephants are quite common in these forests.
A large number of tourists come to Kakkadampoyil to enjoy the cool climate and to stay away from the bustle of the city. The place is the ultimate destination for those who like a picturesque terrain. A trip to the misty place, especially during the monsoon, will be a refreshing experience for anyone. Misty rides, winding mountain roads, pristine rain forests, wildlife, grass lands, waterfalls, reservoirs, gorgeous valley views…all these make ‘Kakkadampoyil’ worth a visit.
