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.

Initially I tried to book tickets for the train but tickets were not available and I could only get waiting list tickets. I expected that later I will surely get confirmed tickets. But it did not happen so. So I planned my journey by car. Though it was a long journey and took time to reach, the travel experience was great by car.

On the way we had pineapple dipped in salt water. It was really worth it. We ate it again while coming back. We tried the same at home also. He had tender coconut and small chats on the way. The sight scene to Wayanad was really worth watching. We really enjoyed it. The road was also good. I took so many photos to keep everything to rejoice later.

If you are travelling to Wayanad, ensure that you get a driver or car from Kerala rather than booking from Mysore or any other state. We happened to travel to Mysore by train and we took a rented taxi but unfortunately we were charged a permit fee of Rs.6000 whereas the actual cost was just 3000. So try avoiding this mistake and take a taxi / car from Kerala.

This is a very right train to reach Mysore and then start your trip to Wayanad. We reached in the morning and went for breakfast by car which we already hired. On the way to Wayanad you get good places to cover.
