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.

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.
