  • Phantom Rock..Rock formation, resembles the shape of Phantom Skull.. Near to Edakkal Caves.. Good place for photography.. scenic view.. No public transportation available to reach there. One have to go by their own. Area is not developed. One can find hardly one or two small shops nearby. No specific timings to visit. No entree fee. There are lots of Black Pepper plants. Best time to visit when weather is good. Not suggested to visit on sunny days.
  • It is one of the best tourist spot at Wayanad for quick visit. Phantom rock is situated near a quarry. There is no hard climb and all, you have walk just around 500 meters to reach the spot. The spot offers a splendid view. The main attraction is the rock which forms the shape of old comic hero Phantom, hence the name. There is no entry fee and all, but there is a gate at the entrance which closes at around 6 in the evening, so if you are visiting the place at evening better park your vehicle at the roadside( We can climb the gate if it closes.. no problem 😜).
