Chain Tree - Wayanad
This place has a story behind it. A rather sad one: an Englishman had taken the help of Karinthandan, a tribal, in order to cross the mountain terrain into Wayanad. The Englishman killed the tribal once they had crossed and took credit for finding the route through the jungle. People believe that Karinthandan's ghost had been haunting later travellers. It was calmed only after a priest chained the spirit to this tree. The large Ficus tree here, with a huge chain that goes around it, stands to bear that story. The place is located 15km from Kalpetta.
