Feroke



Feroke is an important place with beautiful natural vegetation, situated on the bank of the River Chaliyar near Kozhikode. It is on the boundary of Wayanad District. The Western Ghats covers most of the area enhancing the scenic beauty of the place. The Ghat section, 14 km long with nine hairpin curves amidst hills and forests is an enchanting region.

Feroke is the hub of the tile industry in Kerala. The rich clay borne by the rapid rivers from the Western Ghats after passing through the forest forms the raw-material for tiles, pottery and ceramicware. There are more than a dozen tile factories in Feroke alone. Feroke College is a premier educational institution in this place.

Feroke Railway Station serves this area.
