Paithal Mala


Hours Open : 9AM - 4PM


An invigorating 6 km trek, a trail interspersed with rare endemic species, waterfalls and a panoramic view of neighbouring Karnataka, are some of the primary attractions of the magnificent hill station of Pythal Mala or Paithalmala in Kannur. One of the highest peaks in Kannur, this enchanting hill station is located about 65 km from the main town and about 4500 ft. above sea level, one must traverse a good distance to reach this quaint spot. But the payoff is immediate, as vouched by many a trekking aficionado.

Monsoon and summer is considered to be the best time to explore the beauty of this hill station. Trekkers also can have a dip in the cool waters of Ezharakundu Waterfalls on the way.

A secluded locale, it offers one the opportunity to soak in the splendour of Northern Kerala in peace.
