The Aralam Sanctuary is located on the western slopes of the Western Ghats. It is the northernmost wildlife sanctuary of Kerala. It was established in 1984. The headquarters of the sanctuary is near Iritty, a small town about 55 km from Kannur. The Aralam Sanctuary has spread over 55 sq km of undulating forested highlands on the slopes of the Western Ghats. The highest peak here – Katti Betta – rises to a majestic 1145 m above sea level. Covered with tropical and semi-evergreen forests, the Aralam Sanctuary is home to a vast variety of flora and fauna endemic to the Western Ghats. Herds of deer, elephant, boar, and bison are common sights. Leopards, jungle cats and various types of squirrels are also seen here.
