Top Viewpoints in Wayanad

Neelimala View Point

Neelimala View Point, one of the best view points in Wayanad, not frequented by visitors come for short stay. After a three kilometers drive on Ooty road from Vaduvanchal, take a diversion to right, climb up a rugged road. You will reach the base of a tribal settlement, surrounded by coffee plantation and pepper vines. On moving further one would have the company of the coffee plantations on either side. Small holdings of ginger and areca nut, bushes of purple flower plants, chirping sun birds and other varieties of small birds darting in and out of the bushes will be an experience of life time for many who comes from ultra modern cities and Metro hubs. The trekking path gets narrower after half a kilometer from the base, and goes down before it climbs up again. There, the vegetation on the sides changes to tall, wild grass, including the lemon grass variety. The path goes further up and suddenly opens up into a panoramic view, with the mountain folds of the Western Ghats on your left and a hill slope sated with grass and boulders on the right. You are at Neelimala View Point, the seldom explored view point that offers astounding scenery which can hypnotize a nature lover.  Once visited, one could never forget the mesmerizing sight of garrulous Meenmutty waterfalls from afar, gushing down from a whopping height of 300 meters. It flows down further in three tiers, tearing apart the green blanket of dense forest. As you remain there, your ears slowly capture a rumble, down the valley. Take the narrow path going down to the left that would lead you to a spot, where you would find yourself standing behind a rocky spur with the rumble noise intensified. Descend carefully down and move towards the middle of the rocky spur. It may take some time for you to believe the mesmerizing sight that is right before you. A track of milky water that down flows, flanked by evergreen forests. As you watch the gripping beauty of waterfall and its trail, an occasional blanket of thick mist could block your sight. Wait for some time and the mist clears out. Occasionally the sheet of mist would split open to reveal the waterfall, which is yet another delightful thing to watch. Take in its immaculate beauty as much as you can. No doubt, Neelimala View Point a photographer’s delight too. Do not miss it when you are at Wayanad. Best time to visit Neelimala view point is September to Mar.
