About Kuruvadweep

99%
voted as clean

Kuruva Island is also popularly known as Kuruva Dweep, which lies on the banks of the tributaries of River Kabini. This island is a famous picnic spot which is located away from the main towns of the district.

Situated around 17 km from Mananthavady, it is inhabited by rare bird species, herbal plants and orchids. This island covers a large area of around 950 acres of evergreen forest.

It is also famous for its bamboo canopy which provides a glimpse into the natural treasure of the confluence of the rivulets. This island is close to the Begur Wildlife Sanctuary, which is home to varied wild animals and birds. Boating facilities are provided by the District Tourism Promotion Council.

"Local picnic spot"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
An island of nature's beauty. It is like a small picnic of the locals. Lot of monkeys on the island. To go to the island we need to take a boat ride. One can take pictures of the natural beauty.

"Clean place nature friendly"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Dec 20, 2014
The raft trip from one end to the other is worth experimenting. No plastics allowed - so place is clean. Worth working towards the stream as it is clean and nature friendly. At the deep it was adventurous and thrilling to walk on the stones and gushing water.

"Awesome Place, no eatables available"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Nov 24, 2014
One of the best places I have ever visited in my life. Never miss this place if you visit Wayanad. The dweep is an island where there is nice greenery. I have never seen such a place which is so cool and calm during day time. There is no food/Water available so one has to carry food if required.

"A Unique experience"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Nov 3, 2014
It was a pleasant experience as if being in a Island. We need to make sure our trip is not during monsoon season. It will be pleasant if this is planned on a bright sunny day.

"Most beautiful place I had ever seen"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Sep 18, 2014
Kuruva dweep (Kuruva Island) one of the beautiful places in Kerala or India. I think Wayanad is the capital of Kerala tourism. It is located nearby Pulpally, Kuruva dweep is a wide ecosystem and included so many herbals. KTDC has taken the control of the place. So we can enter there with their pass .CHANGADAM (typical boat) service is there. Overall, it will give you a good feeling at nature.

"Water rafting in an island"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Sep 2, 2014
We had a wonderful experience of water rafting in Kuruvadweep. The distance may be short. But for the first timers it will be thrilling as most of us would have just saw in media only.

"A place to get peace"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted Aug 26, 2014
This is a tourist attraction; we have to cross a small water body to reach this place. There is a kind of boat made up of bamboo sticks and by this transport we can reach the place. After reaching there, we have to walk a long way and it is quite adventurous. Many kids from schools and college students visit here. There are many handmade stuffs available, which are made out of the bamboos.

"Okay place to visit"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted Aug 13, 2014
One needs to travel 25-30 kms from Sulthan Bathery or Kalpetta to reach the location. It was not so great as we could only see a few birds in the location. The bamboo boat journey was nice. One can enjoy the stream passing through the place if you reach the stream after walking a kilometre. Not worth the long travel.
