"The place of many attractive spots"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
During my visit at Wayanadu district on december 2013 so many attractions impressed me.Since Wayanadu is close to ootty the climatic condition of the district is always good.Sky scraper hills ,banasura dam,pookkode lake,chain tree, karapuzha dam,thirunelly temple,trissilery temple,paapanasini,pakzhipathalam ,kuruva island,pazhassi raja tomb,chempra peak,edaccal caves,phantom rocks,ambalavayal heritage museum ,tholpatty wild life sanctury ,jain temple etc are the main attractions.All the attractions are intersting informative &enjojable. One important thing to remember is that the expense for visiting can be minimised by using the private/kstrc bus servicing in all the routes. Only auto charge to reach the exact point.By camping at kaipatta we can complete the whole area within three days. This district is the home of coffee plantaions &spices especially bamboo rice getting once in forty years.I recommend to include this place of beauty in the tour package.

"Nestled close to mountains and streams"

  • 6/7
  • Posted Jan 8, 2014
Kapetta is a very nice town nestled close to mountains and streams. The town itself is buzzing with several modern shops and all kinds of amenities. People have been very friendly and helpful. It is a pleasant town to be in or pass through.

There are both hotels and home stays available nearby. Since we were vegetarians we were particular about a vegetarian home stay. Luckily, we found a great place called Sundara Mahal just on the outskirts of the town. We have a really good experience during our stay here.

The weather was perfect - warm during days, and cold during nights, making us snuggle into warm sheets and get a good sleep.

"Fantasic-Because of the stay in Sundara Mahal"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Jan 6, 2014
This place has lots of Coffee, Tea Plantations and also abundant greenery to keep you interested. I would avoid Tholpatty Forest reserve and this reserve did not have any animals except deer. Edakkal caves and Suchipura waterfalls are good place to visit. Kuruva Island has been restricted to a smaller place. Previously we can go inside multiple Water Bodies and Smaller Islands walking and but now everything is restricted to a smaller area. I would avoid this.
But if you like to read, relax and have good food, you can consider Sundara Mahal for their hospitality and vegetarian delicacy they provide.

"Relaxing town"

  • Posted Jul 3, 2013
It's a too good relaxing place. Surrouded by mountains and tea plantations, Kalpetta is worth a vacation destination. Lakes, Dam, Caves, you have lot to see and enjoy.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Spices are a must to be purchased. The tamil restaurant on the main road provides awesome food. People are helping and friendly.

Activities & things to do: You can visit Edakkal caves, Pokkat lake, Banasura Sagar dam, Chembra peak and the beautiful tea gardens.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: From Bangalore, go till Mysore. Take the Ooty road, after certain distance, there is a right turn to Sulthan Bathery. Take that road, continue start and you will enter Kerala after the wildlife area. Appox. 280 kms from Bangalore.

"KALPETTA TRIP"

  • Posted Jun 10, 2013
First we plan to visit one place in sulthan batheri after our visit , we know that place is closed due to heavy rain and natural disaster we didn't noticed on the way so we felt very bad on that day. also on the day was wasted with this problem.
second day we visit chempra peak its so nice while trekking . its a very tough & nice experience because the trekking place very rough.
after we purchase the kalpatta but all things are very costly hence we purchased some particular special items only(Chips & Halwa)

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food is very bad in kalpetta like all hotels and service also very poor.
and Sight seeing is very nice.
And shopping is not bad but costly.

Activities & things to do: Nothing

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: We must select the good drivers with correct price deal.
Because all drivers character is not good that's why.
In traveling we must avoid alcohol because very danger.
