A/C bus was comfortable and the timings was maintained well. Staff were good, but we felt like bed bugs were in the seats of the bus, which caused some allergy to my husband. So better to keep the bus hygienic. Dropped us near the hotel without much issue, and also pick-up in front of hotel.

A friend of mine and I decided to visit Wayanad. We were two couple with two kids, each less than 1 year old started off from Bangalore at about 10 AM in my friend in Honda Brio. We reached a village at about 6 in the evening when it was dark and from where on we were about to start the uphill drive.

We took a right turn from a National Highway to start on the up hill journey and we realised that soon there were no milestones which could indicate path. We still continued our journey after checking with people and following our mobile GPS. But soon, even the mobile network gave way and we were entirely lost in pitch dark on narrow single lane road with no idea as to where to head to. At this moment, no person seemed to be trustworthy more so when we have two ladies and very young kids along. In the mid way somewhere, we realised that the road we had taken was taking us nowhere, we decided to take a U turn on a single lane road.

While we were at it, the headlights flashed inside a dark old Bungalow which was like a Holiday Resort and no lights thus seeming like an old Hindi horror movie show Dak Bunglow. Amid-st all this we continued our journey to see two young guys with textbooks in they hands. We asked these boys for directions who had no clue and gave some vague ideas. Soon after, the same guys overtook our car at high speed on the bike on a narrow road which was no less than a Dhoom movie stunt thus making us to think if they were up-to some mischief.

Just ahead, we realised that a car was following us since long. Since we were already terrified, we could only think negative about it. While I was at steering wheel, I asked everyone to hold the kids tightly with their seat-belt ON as I had decided to drive as fast as I could ignoring all speed bumps and potholes (Feeling sorry for my friend for his new car) so as to keep away from that car. Meanwhile, one of us kept trying to get in touch with the hotel reception who had no clue what way we should take even after we described all possible landmarks that we could identify whenever we got small mobile network.

Things became really dangerous when the same car overtook us, stopped some distance ahead of us and a dark man got down from the car. But, I just zipped past that car at the max speed that I could manage on that road and kept on moving for another 15 mins or so when we realised that we had huge trees surrounding us. After 5 minutes, we realised that we were approaching a seemingly busy road which is when we got sigh of relief and soon following the same road, we reached the Highway and also the hotel. The two ladies (my friendís and my wife) had the best of time venting out all their anger at the lady who was at the reception and did not help us at all. While this was the most terrified journey we had ever had, it really had a lot to teach all of us for our numerous journeys to come in the future.

Drive was pleasant and roads are fantastic. Great pit stops. Lovely jungle, got to see elephant and Deer. Reached destination in less than 6 hrs. Children had a wonderful time. Wyanad had great sight seeing places. Edakkaal caves is the best, if you want to enjoy water. Several small streams run through where you can get in and have fun. Forest walks can be done with guide.

We started early morning from Bangalore and reached Wayanad by noon. On our journey, we saw many monkey and passed through forest areas which will excite your experience. It has good road conditions with beautiful sightseeing.

Road pass through along Kabini River bed side and if you are driving early morning or evening possibly you can get glimpse of wild animals.

It's worth sightseeing on your drive.

It was good, roads are very nice in Kerala. Visited Museum, Muthunga Wildlife Sanctuary, view points and Banasura Dam. Banasura Dam is worth visiting. Hotels near sanctuary are decent. On return journey saw Elephant, Bison which made our journey a successful one.
