"Visit only for Hill station and Adventure Activities"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Wayenad is a district in the north-east of Kerala state, india. It is set high on the western ghats with altitudes ranging from 700 to 2100 m . According to archaeological evidence, the wayenad forests inhabited for more than 3000 years. The trip was from Bangalore to wayenad . The day was 30th Dec 2016. A special day as this day is my birth date. Though I had flooded with good wishes still I was excited about the trip wayenad, kerela . We started our journey from Marathalli, Bangalore at around 11. 30 PM. Night was so dark and richer than before. The path is sparkling like sugar underfoot . Though the flowers sleep and trees shows their lofty arms once more, the smile plays upon these cold lips. We were 6 people in tavera. Actually it seldom rains in winter but. No sooner than we get into the van it started. The itinerary was Bangalore to Wayenad via Mysore and Bandipur national park . . As there is some restriction to movement vehicles through bandipur in some stretches 9. 00 pm to 5. 00 am, so we have planned accordingly . We took a halt for tea and snacks in Mysore. Snacks was fully ludicrous to cost. Whilst I was taking my tea suddenly I saw 2 boys were running very fast and trying to prevail from another. This thing you must have seen often in late night . However we started the journey after the tea break. Before we reaching the destination, we had planned to visit one of the tourist place I. E. Alkali Caves. Alkali caves are two natural caves. At remote location at decal. It took 8 hr from Bangalore. They lie 1200 m above sea level. You have to take many steps to reach the destination. So One should climb carefully. Why I am telling to climb carefully ,. Beacause while we were climbing, one of the visitor leg got slipped and he fell down on the stone and blood came out, really it was pity moments . This place is worth seeing. After spent all 2 hours there, we started our journey to our homestay I. Vythiri Homestay in Vythiri. Homestay ambience is quite good. All where greenery and few homes nearby . We ought to have reached early but it took some time to finding the routes. Cost of the homestay was affordable. If amenities comes to the picture, then free parking and care taker. We took quick shower and headed towards the lunch prepared by care taker. Food was very tasty and yummy, especially peper chicken. After having lunch we needed to go our next destination Banasura Sagar dam. It was around 24 km distance from our hotel. We came back to our hotel after spending the evening time in Banasura dam. View was beautiful due to the reservoir and winter evening with beautiful color of sky and range of mountains . Finally we were excited to celebrate the last night of the year. Some people used to drink alcohol. But due to alcohol ban in Kerela they did not get any where. The night was cold and we covered with cardigan We were in the room and laughing loudly due to funny jokes and crazy things by people. We suddenly heard High volume sounds and Once we went to terrace wo got to see many tourists are dancing around the bun fire . We enjoyed a beautiful night at the top of the hill, calm and tranquility, among the new faces, high music with terrible steps. One of my checklist completed we slept tightly lest we should feel week on next day as it was the day in wayenad. Woke up early morning with Kerela tea (One of the best tea I have ever had). After having our breakfast we had planned to see the view from top of the hill and we headed towards that. Whilst we drove towards hill station, we saw the hooding "Longest zipline in kerala" in vytheri . Then we could not stop ourselves to enjoy it. It was best adventurious and thrilling experience till the date After that we came back to Bangalore via Mysore and ended the journey with cherish memories.

Cool place, pollution free . 1. You can plan Radical caves in the morning time, it is hill need to climb. But after reaching top the enjoyment is different. You will forget all tiredness . 2. Banasura dam - Any time. 3. Pucket Lakes - morning or evening time, please do boating. 4. Chambara Peak -Good one.

"The Hill Station with a Beautiful Sunrise"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Dec 7, 2017
Wayanad is Kerala's best hill station but a little shadowed due to the prominence of Munnar and Thekkady. But nothing can beat Wayands natural abundance in beauty climate and serenity.
There are lot of vegetations such as carrots, ginger, Pepper, Coffee and Tea plantations that are home to Wayanad.

"Hill station of Kerala"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Dec 7, 2017
Wayanad is a beautiful hill station in Kerala located 300kms from Bangalore. We stayed at Windflower Resorts and Spa. The way to reach this resort is one hour drive on hill. The location is beautiful and weather is very good because of its location. There is lot to offer in this resort that we did not feel like going anywhere else. It offer stunning landscape views surrounded by coffee, pepper and cardamom trees. Near to resort is the zip line adventure sport activity which is very enjoyable.
