Nestled in the Kerala Karnataka border near to Kodagu forests, it lies in the Western Ghats.

Thinks to do

There is an observatory tower made by the department of tourism at the hilltop which can be reached after a 45 min walk from the Paithal valley. Trekking starts through the dense forest followed by the plain grass land on the hill top.View of the valley from the observatory tower is breathtaking and the observer’s eyes can hover over more than half the area of Kannur district.


Treeking at Paithalmala 
There are two trekking seasons at Paithalmala, falling in monsoon and summer. Monsoon (June to October) trekking to Paithalmala is a photographer's delight as the mist blankets the hills and forest. One can indulge into the lush greenery amidst the showers throughout the day, especially in July. Practically, trekking is not as easy as in the summer because of the extreme climate. Watch out for leeches and occasional elephant visits.
