Chain Tree Wayanad
Chain Tree Wayanad is located near Vythiri and is 15 km from Kalpetta. This is a large Ficus tree bounded by a long chain. The Ficus tree is the official tree of Thailand. Under natural conditions, this tree will grow up to 98 feet. It has swinging branches, silky leaves and small fruit. This small fruit is a favourite food for many birds.
There is an interesting story behind this Chain Tree Wayanad. It is said that one Adivasi youth named Karinthandan helped or guided one British engineer to find the difficult path through the dense forest to Wayanad. But the crooked engineer who wanted to take the full credit for this discovery killed Karinthandan. The angry soul of this Adivasi started troubling travellers who used to visit Wayanad. It is said that one priest chained this angry spirit to this tree.
