About Kuruvadweep

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.

Family friendly, we cannot go after 5 pm as this is the forest area. They send the visitors back after 5 pm. Nice place to see, we have to cross by a jumbo boat, the water way is very nice.

"Kuruva Island a best place for nature lover"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Kuruva Island is located 58 KMs from Sulthan Bathery. It is a group of 3 islands located in the middle of the Kabini river spread across in 950 acres. The island is surrounded by streams and Kabini river can be accessed by using bamboo rafts. There is a entry fee of Rs 80/- for adults to cross the stream and to reach the island. The bamboo raft travel provides a thrilling and exciting journey through streams. The whole Kuruva Island is a unique Eco system and worth place for nature lovers. Tourists can walk and enjoy the enchanting Flora and Fauna in the island.

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.

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.
