This is a thick dense forest and is called the "Chirapunchi" of Kerala (India) because of the high availability of heavy rains. It is about 44 kms. from Kozhikode and is the boundary to Wayanad district. A journey through this Ghat section is an enjoyable experience. It is 14 kms. long with nine hairpin curves amidst a number of hills and thick forests. A view from the top will be a breath taking experience.
