Thamarassery is a major town and a taluk in Kozhikode district of Kerala,India 30 km east of Kozhikode (Calicut) City. It lies on the Calicut-Wayanad-Mysore route (National Highway 212).The ghat pass (“churam”) begins from Adivaram (downhills), while coming from Kozhikkode and ends at Lakkidi, the beginning of Wayanad district.
There are 9 hairpin curves, which are numbered from 1 to 9, starting from the first one at the downhills. The adventurous hairpin roads through the ghat pass will hold you spell bound. The amazing view of serpentine roads of the ghat pass from the view point located at the 9th hairpin, is really spectacular.
The entire ghat road is about 12 km and you would take about 30 to 45 minutes to cover this distance. Presence of fog may further slow down your journey. The best place to stop by is the view point at the top of the churam, near Lakkidi. Avoid stopping in any other places especially on the hairpin curves to avoid any accidents. While fog is very interesting to watch and experience, you may not want to drive the dangerous hill roads during fog. The visibility is very poor and you may not be able to see the boundaries of the road properly unless your vehicle is equipped with fog lights. If you experience heavy fog during driving, I would suggest you to turn on headlamps, park your car in a safe place and enjoy the beauty until the road is clear and safe to continue driving.
