Karlad Lake, located in Thariode, Wayanad.

It situates in Tariod, 16 km west of Kalpetta. The lake spreads in an area of 7 acres and is a place where you can be with yourself, more so because it is not a huge tourist hotspot.

The lake with all its beauty and facilities of boating and angling is still to gain its share of popularity. Boating is being halted for some time. The atmosphere is suited for trekking too. It is around 8 Km from Vythiri. Major developmental activities are being planned in Karlad Lake.

It is better to hire a vehicle since there is no direct bus service up to the lake or board Kalpetta Padinjarethara bus and get down at Kavummandam stop and pick an auto to the lake side.
