"It is a delta formed by River Kabini"

  • Posted 1 month ago
Plastics are not allowed. But the security person search you as if you are a thief cum terrorist trying to sneak in with a biscuit wrapper and a bottle of water which can drown the whole island.. They don't want to provide dustbins because otherwise their staff will have to clean it

"Good walk and bath in the flowing water"

  • Posted Sep 15, 2015
Nice place. Children will enjoy much - the raft that takes us to the island and bathing in the running water is really a great experience. Gives a good experience amidst a dense forest like trees.

"These cluster of islets is a nature lover's paradise"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 10, 2015
Located 15 Kms from Mananthavady these evergreen forest islets will be a delightful experience to explore. Located in one of the tributaries of River Kabini, we can explore this islets to see variety of flora and fauna. The huge trees, the rare parrots, butterflies, the fresh water lakes flowing through the Kuruvadweep - all will make an exceptional experience. We were allotted a small fiber boat by the authorities which gave us an opportunity to explore the islets traveling through the water. Worth spending a day visiting Kuruvadweep and lot to see and learn.

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 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.

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"

  • 5.5/7
  • 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"

  • 7.0/7
  • 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.
