As said by Confucius "All good things are difficult to achieve", there are not much options to stay near this place. After a conversation with the locals, we got to know there are 2-3 lodges around and do not count to be safe. From Kalpetta, where we stayed in an apartment, we reached Mepaddi - a 15 km journey, on a local KSRTC bus. These buses run almost every 30 minutes and charge around 75 Indian Rupees per person. Reaching Kalpetta is not much difficult with local buses running daily from Calicut, Bangalore, Cochin and other parts of South India. From Mepaddi we opted for an auto rickshaw to take us to the ticket counter of the peak which was approximately 10 km; charging us 250 Indian Rupees.
