Chembra Peak Road
Chembra Peak : It is the highest peak in Wayanad and adventure lovers will love to trek it and scale its height. A typical trekking exercise however will last for a whole day (to cover the whole length) and after the hectic climb you can relax in temporary camps for a day or two at the top of Chembra Peak
After our packed Day 1 so far, we decided to head to our hotel for lunch and further stay. For stay, we booked The Lantern Stay - A jungle resort located amidst the hills and waterfalls. You can't take your vehicles up till the resort, so you'll have to park it somewhere & a 4x4 hotel jeep will come to pick you up. The ride up till the resort is plain AWESOMENESS; it's bumpy, fun and what's more.. you have so much to see around on the way. They have a great staff(if you get to meet people, do meet Vinu & Vinod -- Helpful, Humble and Great guys). Once in the resort, make sure you have nothing else planned in the town for evening, because the resort takes care of everything!! Be it your 3 meals of day, or a night bonfire or an early morning trek, don't worry.. They got your back :)
