An uninterrupted strip of elevated green expanses and forests, Wayanad is a part of ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala. Tucked away to the north-east of the state, the region is fantastically unspoiled and happily remote. Embedded with mountain tops and paddy fields, it is blessed with abundant flora and fauna – intersected by sparkling waterfalls.
Wayanad serves as the ideal stopover for travellers and families en route to Ooty, Mangalore, Bangalore or Mysore. There are several things to do with your family here. You can go trekking, cycling, camping and rafting – among other adventure activities. If you choose trekking, at Chembra Peak and Neelimala View Point, you’ll find panoramic views that embrace the ethereal beauty of the region.
The Edakkal Caves are another all-important drawcard for those travelling to Wayanad. Housed in the Ambukuthi Hills and tracing back to the Neolithic Age (6,000 B.C.), these caves are famous for their beautiful etchings and ancestral paintings, thus identifying some of the earliest signs of human settlement. Further down, you'll find the Wayanad Heritage Museum, which houses tools, weapons, engravings, pottery, and other important artefacts dating back to the 14th century. Then, there is the beautiful Thirunelli Temple. This architectural delight is considered to be one of the oldest temples on the subcontinent!
Preserving the biological heritage of the region is the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary. It is an excellent place to spot elephants in the wild. While there are so many things to do in Kerala, exploring the intriguing culture of Wayanad should definitely be at the top of your bucket list.
