"Good place to visit"

Jun 28, 2016
It tells us about the ancient people tools. My children studied a lot from this. There was not a lot of people so we saw it slowly. When we went there was no electricity, so we experience all of that features, though it was good.

"Good one"

Jan 7, 2016
First you visit museum and then you visit Kanthanpara Waterfalls just 16 kms away . No need to visit Vythiri Lakes or Banasura Dam or Soochipara Waterfalls. You will just be travelling too much without any enjoyment.

"A good museum"

Jun 29, 2015
The collection in this museum is good. We can see some old things which were being used by the ancient people to hunt and also some tools which they were using for household purposes.

"Good speed boating!"

Jun 20, 2014
Wonderful experience with speed boating and its worth waiting in the long ticket queue. Good natural landscapes around. Jeep rides are included in the tickets. So, no need to walk to the dam.

"Very Beautiful Town in Wayanad District"

Jan 8, 2014
This is a small town in Wayanad District, you can get good hotels around the city, and of all range. I would encourage staying in this place is, most of the attractions are located in vicinity of this town, less populated and polluted. But, only catch is that vegetarians might not get excellent food (not Kerala food). There are so many places around this town which you will enjoy like: trekking to Chembura peak, Banasura dam, Pookate lake etc.
