More on Vythiri

According to a local legend here at Vythiri, a local tribal youth from the Kathrinandan tribe guided an English engineer to build the Ghat road leading to Vythiri, through the dense forest of Wayanad. However, in a distasteful case of betrayal, the Englishmen killed him after extracting necessary information, to take possession of the reward announced by the then Viceroy for building this road. This enraged the spirit of the youth, and it is said that this spirit had caused many accidents on the road. To stop the mishaps, a priest (manthravadi) took the initiative to chain the spirit to a huge banyan tree in Vythiri. This chain tree is seen even today in the Lakkidi area. Passing motorists often pay homage to the tree, to have a safe passage. Locals believe the spirit of Kathrinandan to be the guardian of this area.

Vythiri has most of the popular preparations of a typical Keralan menu, from essentials like Appams and Idlis to the delicious Payasam. One can try out Ghee Roast Dosa and Malayalee Parotha, Biriyani as well as the popular Toddy
