Kakkayam vally, Kozhikode



Kakkayam Valley is situated in Kozhikode district, 45-50kms away from the town and its noisy environment, offers the tourists not only a reservoir and its beauty but also a fantastic chance to enjoy the trekking and the scenic beauty of evergreen forest and grasslands. The main thing about this wonderful natural gift  is that, this place is still untouched by the tourists crowd and is not at all there in the tourist map of Kerala. Valley formed by Kakkayam dam site.

The reservoir comes as part of the Kuttiyadi Hydro Electric Project & is located at a height of about 2450 ft above sea level. The pen stock runs down from the dam site and goes through various tunnels and hills to the Kuttiyadi Tail race power house at Kakkayam. Water coming out of this power house joins a river and is utilized for Peruvannamoozhi Irrigation Project.
 
Kakkayam is really a forest area surrounded by hills, waterfalls, streams and more over it is one of the most beautiful adventurous evergreen forest area in Kerala. the journey to the Kakkayam valley if done once, will be an unforgettable in ones life time. the journey through the curved hilly roads with deep green valley in one side and part of dense forest on the other side will be a memorable one for a trek lover.
