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.

Stay:
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.)

Commute:
Swift

Route:
Bangalore - Mysore - Nanjangud - Gundalpet - Sultan bathery - Kalpetta - Vythiri
750kms (both to and fro with local roundup)

Places to see:
Must see sites...
  • Pookot lake
  • Valley view
  • Chembra peak trek
  • Soojipara falls
  • Edakkal caves
