Pakshipathalam is one of the most treasured trekking routes in Kerala. The thick forests, rivers, and hills attract nature lovers and ornithologists to this bird’s abode. It will take almost 3hours to trek through this landscape. The sanctuary is situated at a height of 1740 mt in the Brahmagiri mountain region. The thick forest is home for birds and a wide range of animals that evoke excitement and thrill. Since camping is impossible within the forest, trekkers have to return from the forest before getting dark.
Prior permission from DFO is also needed to trek through this natural haven that shares its borders with Karnataka and Kerala. The sanctuary is famous for the vicinity of ‘Edible Nest Swift light.’ A temple and watchtower situated within the sanctuary help tourists to find their way out. Pakshipathalam is an extraordinarily beautiful Wayanad destination because of its closeness with nature.
