The history of Kakkaym valley began with the Malabar migration in the 1940’s. Kakkaym valley rose to prominence in the 60’s with the Kuttyadi hydroelectric project and Peruvannamuzhy dam which are the most important power & irrigation projects in Malabar region. Situated in the foothills of Wayanad on the Western Ghats, Kakkayam valley is surrounded by Malabar wild life sanctuary and two dams namely Kakkayam dam and Peruvannamuzhy dam. Due to its proximity to dams and wild life sanctuaries, Kakkayam valley is known as the Ooty of Malabar and as such offers a host of activities to the thrill seekers like camping, cycling, hiking, trekking, off-roading etc.
