Nothing attractive about this rock. you need to cross a rubber plantation to reach the spot. Stone quarrying activity has made the adjoining area dangerous. Don't go there unless you have lots of time to kill.

The place is full of dust and noisy due to mining which has also spoilt the beauty of surrounding environment. Moreover it's not a right time to visit.

The phantom rock is a rarely visited spot in Wayanad. The phantom rock is easily visible after walking a little from the main entrance. Facing the rock the left side panoramic view is beautiful and on the right there is a whitish rocky hill with...More

The rock looks like a phantom when seen from far. Nothing else to do here.The main gate is closed and one should go through a rickety gate. Very few visitors.
