Kasargod is bound to cast its magical spell on every visitor with its most exciting sights tucked deep in its lesser-known destinations. With a multitude of sigh-inducing sights, the district calls all to explore the unexplored!
Achamthuruthi is a small island that abounds with incredible beliefs and rituals. It is a village in the middle of the Tejaswini River, near Cheruvathur of Kasaragod district. Old-timers believe that as it is beyond the Thuruthi village of Cheruvathur, it came to be known as Achamthuruthi.
As the morning unfurls, take a country boat and cruise through the picturesque waters and enjoy the symphony of the rustic life and soothing murmurs of this pristine corner.
What adds more charm to this serene and slow-moving village is the ritual artform Theyyam. On the banks of the Tejaswini River situates the Vishnu Moorthy Bala Gokulam Temple where, every year as part of its annual festival, Theyyam performances are held. Since, it is performed exclusively by the unmarried youth based here, it is known as pillerutheyyam, and ottakolam theyyam. The myths and legends associated with this are nothing short of awe inspiring.
Malom is a small town that lies lazily near the Western Ghats in Kasaragod district. Known as the ‘Coorg’ of Kerala, it is blessed with Nature’s bounty. The word ‘Malom’ comes from the Malayalam word Malakalude lokam (the world of hills). Malom can be developed into a bio-eco tourist centre given the fact that it offers possibilities for trekking, waterfalls, and adventure safari to the nearby hills.
Malom has a rich cultural heritage, which is quite distinct. A rare Theyyam of north Malabar, the ‘Mukri Pokar’, a Muslim Theyyam is seen at Malomkuloth. As it is situated near the Western Ghats and bordering Coorg, it is lush green with the same climatic conditions as that of Coorg.
Kottancherry Hills brings to you an inexplicable harmony with its effortless beauty. Situated next to the Brahmagiri Hills of Kudagu in Karnataka within the Western Ghats region in Kasaragod district, this cluster of hills is a canvas of succulent green beauty. The added flavours of trekking and mountain biking ensure that the place satisfies adventure enthusiasts in a most gratifying way.
Yet another virgin land of immense beauty in Kasaragod is Thonikadavu. This private plantation that teems with life lures one with swaying palm trees, high rising rocks, natural ponds, and streams.
