Formerly known as Madathumala, it is a conjunction of grassy hills near Panathady Town and linked to Kanhangad by Kanhangad-Panathur state highway. Covered with evergreen shola woods, monsoon forests and grasslands, this beautiful land is known for its trekking trails. Ranipuram’s extensive forests merge into those of Karnataka.

Wild elephants can be seen wandering on the mountain tops here. Tourist cottages provide comfortable stay on the hills. Jeep and bus services are available from Panathady and Kanhangad in kasaragod town.
