To reach Wayanad district, we have to climb 9 hairpin curves. On reaching the top, you should stop your vehicle at view point, to enjoy the mesmeric beauty of nature. Fully green, and down, you can see buses climbing the hill. You will feel as such the buses as small as a match box. Next coming up very near by is the Pookot lake. Naturally, this is awesome. Boating is available and children will enjoy.

Good roads and since it was raining most of the time our progress was slow. But no way did it feel frustrating. We enjoyed the 7 hour drive to the maximum. We did just stop once at one of the hairpin bends to take couple of pictures and then proceeded towards our resort.

The total distance travelled was around 280 kms.

We wanted to get away from the city for a day or two and just watch the rains in Wayanad during the onset of the monsoons. As expected, the place was quite deserted as it was off-season time.

Silver green resorts was just the right place we were looking for. Also, since the resort is...more »

We travelled in a Toyota Innova and climate was good in November. Food was not an issue in Wayanad. All restaurants are clean and people are friendly and food was tasty. Better to travel with a local driver in Wayanad as he knows the area well and the route and also when wild animals come on the road. The tea and coffee plantations are worth visiting on your way and do take videos and photos on the plantations.

The trip was scheduled on April 2014 by me and my friends. We took my car fully equipped. The most amazing place we visited was Kuruva Island. It was really wonderful and mind-blowing. We travelled via Ernakulam- Trichur- Calicut- Thamarassery- Wayand. It is the best and most convenient route to reach Wayanad.

The best places to visit are:-
1. Kuruva Island
2. Soochippara Waterfalls
3. Banasura Sagar Dam
4. Karappuzha Dam
5. Pookote Lake
6. Wayanad Churam etc.
