If you are planning to travel to Wayanad be very sure where you going to stay. Sulthan Bathery/Kalpetta. According plan the journey. Calicut is the suggested nearby Station but during peak season the trains are fully booked. You can also opt for Mysore and then come to Wayanad. Pre plan your travel.

You can pick Chennai Express as it will be very fast. Journey is bad as seats are located at the end of the coach and it is always crowded and smelly.

Toilets are not clean and service is the worst. Need to be improve as so many passengers travel daily.

Enjoyed to the core during the journey till we reached Kozhikode. From there we took a bus to Wayanad which took 3 hours and was a fun ride. The climate was wonderful during the period of time. I would prefer Mangalore Express because it's the fastest to reach there and on time right at 4 am so that you can reach Wayanad by 8 am.

We travelled by train from Chennai to Tirupur and then from there we hired a mini a/c bus. The overall experience was good with full of beautiful sceneries on either side. Nice water falls at few places. It was a lovely time we had all together. It was a pleasant time for kids.
