Feroke is a small town near Kozhikode in Malabar region, Kerala, India.


Feroke is an extremely beautiful place but the locals have overdeveloped the whole area with functional buildings and criss crossing roads. You have the sea, rivers and other water bodies wherever you look, but you must have the ability to ignore the traffic blocks and mindless commercialization.

Get in[edit]

Feroke has a major railway station. Buses are available from Kozhikode, 13 km. There is an airport at Kondotty 19 km.

  • 1 Feroke railway station. Feroke railway station (Q20717348) on Wikidata Ferok railway station on Wikipedia
