Its been a while that I challenged my body to something adventurous and eons that I have been for trekking.Hence mission Ranipuram was planned.Little was known about the place that made it even more interesting..This trip was just before the onset of monsoon .This was planned over better view as Ranipuram is a house for leeches and the trekking trail gets quite slippery during monsoon.We started our journey at 8:00 am .There were some 20 of us who set out with full energy..
Though most of the path is through forest once you get to that point its all done..

Nearest railway station is Kanhangad or Kasargod is the major nearest railway station.
Carry min two water bottles for your trip also something to munch after you reach..There is nothing much on top to sit and relaxed so be prepared for that..Its just the magnificent view that is awaiting you on top..
Carry salt if you are planning your travel during monsoon to ward off from leeches.
There are cottages maintained by Kerala tourism development board but it needs advance booking.
There is a hotel on the foothill who serve tasty food if you are opting food..
