Kerala is often described as the God’s Own Country. Wayanad must be its capital.
However beauty hardened you are, Wayanad wouldn't fail to make you that proverbial “wow”. End of Cliché!
In simple terms Wayanad sits in the middle of a region where nature is at its wild best.
On top of it this area is yet to be polluted by the pomp and vanity so-called modern development. That means it is a good place for the city creatures to take a closer look and soak themselves in nature in its raw form.
Wayanad sits trapped in the middle of an arc of wildlife sanctuaries and national parks right from Silent Valley National Park at its south to Nagarhole National Park in its north.
The other national parks – Mukurthi , Mudumalai and Bandipur – completes the arc. Of course there is Muthanga wildlife sanctuary fringe of Wayanad district.
Typically visitors do a few things in Wayanad. Visit the wildlife sanctuaries in Wayanad , scale one the many peaks , roam and enjoy the beauty of the tea and spice plantations , peddle around in the Pookote lake and so on.
If all these sound hectic for you, it is always possible to hibernate in one of the many spas, get rejuvenated by an ayurvedic oil massage, order your exquisite Kerala cuisine at regular intervals or sit and listen to those exotic bird chirping at your backyard.
You would feel yourself a lot smarter if you can pick and chose a right combination of the above all. Check out the popular list of attractions in Wayanad.
