Thusharagiri, located in Kozhikode district, offers a fine trekking trail to Wayanad which is rich with breathtaking views of picturesque waterfalls, various shades of greenery, streams bursting forth from ravines, and rustic log bridges. As the name suggests, land and water have struck an extraordinary kinship at Thusharagiri (mist capped peaks). The plantation destination that abounds in rubber, arecanut, pepper, ginger and spices, is also a trekkers delight. Trekkers start early morning from the second waterfall on the hills and climb up through the pristine dense evergreen forests teeming with exotic birds and animals to reach Vythiri in Wayanad district by evening.
About 48 km from Kozhikode, at the foothills of the Ghats, lies Adivaram, the charming village. You can see a winding road that branches off from NH 212 (Kozhikode – Ooty Highway) and a ten kilometre drive through the road will lead you to the base of the trekking trail in Thusgharagiri. On the way, you will be refreshed by the spectacular rustic beauty of the villages. There is a tourist facilitation centre here which helps you get all the details on trekking and camping.
As you start climbing you will be able to see the final portion of the falls of Thusharagiri which starts from higher up regions. You will have to walk carefully through a narrow steep path which leads to a ravine and you can also watch water plunging over the boulders in the ravine.
