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.

Started at 6.00 am in the morning via Trichur, Kottackal, Ramanattukara, Thamarassery and reached Wayanad at 12.00 noon. The driving through Wayanad Ghat road is a wonderful experience. It is raining all the way and it is a great experience. In ghat road there is thick fog.

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.

We started early from Kochi at around 7 am and had break fast in Thrissur. From Kozhikode we entered Thamarassery Churam and the travelling through Churam was excellent. The view from the forest on both sides of road was good. We reached Kalpetta at 2 and had lunch in hotel Haritagiri. We reached Sulthan Bathery at 5. The journey was nice.

I would like to rate the experience as very good primarily because of the scenic beauty that one could experience en route to Wayanad. I don't think anyone with a basic understanding of geography requires much introduction about the scenic beauty of Wayanad. It can be best enjoyed when you travel in your own vehicle. You can stop over in some of the hair pin turns and enjoy the beauty to the fullest.

Negatives
Recommended only for experienced drivers because of the nine hair pin turns just before reaching Wayanad. Not recommended for people who feel nauseated while climbing uphill.
