Located on the highest peak in Kasargod, at a distance of 85 kms (46 & 54 kms from Kanhangad and Bekal) and sharing the border with Karnataka, Ranipuram is a beautiful mountain terrain covered with evergreen shola woods, monsoon forests and grasslands. Perched at an altitude of 750m above sea level, the natural beauty of this trekker's paradise is comparable to Ooty. This area was formerly known as madathumala and as the name suggests, its sprawling thick wooded forest merge with the forests of Karnataka; i.e Talacauvery wildlife sanctuary. Ranipuram forms an elephant corridor between the two states and wild elephants can be seen roaming on the mountain tops. It is an unexplored territory of nature enthusiasts and bird watchers. Variety of birds and different species of butterflies can be seen in the canopies. From its highest point of ranipuram called 'mani', one can get a panoramic view of the landscape and acres of green valleys which will be a real treat for the eyes.

The proposed 50 sq.km Ranipuram wildlife sanctuary will be a boon to tourism development in Kasaragod district. October to March is the best time to visit. To cater the accommodation facilities, tourist cottages are provided by DTPC, KTDC and several private players.
