Kava is an awesome and silent scenic spot located on the other side of the Malampuzha Dam. There are no public transport systems available to the place. Either drive through the Malampuzha - Kanjikode road and take left to Kava - Anakkal Road (after Rock Gardens), or walk straight after the end of the dam, along the catchment area. (It is too much to walk, you are warned). The waves of water will make you feel you are on a sea shore. The location would be an unforgettable delight for Nature lovers and photographers.
