Wayanad Trip

Over last weekend we did a 3 day trip to Wayanad. In a nut-shell it was an awesome place to be at. For a travel buff, the place gives you all the varieties.

Stream Valley Cottages

(This resort offers very comfortable and peaceful stay amidst a stream. This resort is not a very posh property but offers very good VFM. There is no restaurant in the resort but they have a kitchen to serve the guests. There are other restaurants in the vicinity if you would like to taste the local authentic food.)
