The district was initially governed by the tribal communities commonly called ‘Adivasis’. During the colonial days, a British officer wanted to know the shortest path leading the beautiful location in Wayanad. He seeks the help of a young Adivasi boy. After standing the route he killed him so that he could take the credit. It is said that his spirit still haunts travellers when passing through the route. But some says it is a myth.
