Paithalmala, also called Vaithalmala, is a popular hill station, and only a few know that it exists in the Kannur region in the state of Kerala. The station is one of the few where nature is not largely affected by the human population. The location is said to be a treat for all the nature lovers, photographers, selfie lovers and the same goes for all the adventure lovers. Ditch the basic tourist destinations in Kerala for this unexplored and unexploited spot. Hurry up before it becomes a tourist hub!

Paithalmala is more than your ordinary trek, as one can visit an observatory tower located at the hilltop, a 45min walk from the Paithal Valley.

Also, you'll have to carry your own luggage and there will be no porters.

We can't guarantee a restroom everywhere, so you need to be flexible with that as well. That's one fun part of treks! But we do provide basic facilities for our trekkers to freshen up - no worries on that note!
