"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.

"Wayanad the place of heaven"

  • Posted Oct 29, 2017
Wayanad is a place where we enjoy the nature and hospitality to the chore. We completely lose ourselves in the nature's beauty. A good place for hiking lovers and waterfalls admirers. Of Course the wildlife.

"Mysterious caves to Luxury Villas!"

  • Posted Oct 26, 2017
We often head to Wayanad, a quaint hill station in Kerala located 300kms from Bangalore. It makes for a perfect getaway due to its proximity to home, it’s wildlife and breathtaking landscape.
It’s yet another weekend today and we are headed to Kalpetta. Our objective is to see some wildlife and enjoy Kerala cuisine.
We take the route that crossed Muthanga wildlife sanctuary. Located next to Bandipur, Muthanga is know for its elephant and deer population with the occasion tiger/leopard sighting. As we reach Muthanga, we slow down hoping to spot something. The landscape looks barren; brown bald trees and dried out shrubs. The sun is shining hard on us and we are feeling a little hot even with the AC on. We wonder how animals survive this without any shade of water.
Our car nudges on slowly and the landscape has turned green. Signs of water nearby. High chances of spotting some elephants maybe. We linger on but looks like we’re out of luck. We lose hope and move on looking for lunch options.
Location – Muthanga forest. The location of our first stop. Tucked away in the forest is a small guest house with a small rocky stream flowing nearby. Plenty of Elephant and deer sightings and unfortunately we weren’t carrying our camera at the time
Our stay at the first guest house was pleasant. Food and service were top notch and now its time to move to the next homestay.
Some sort of green tea served upon arrival. Couldn’t figure out what it was but it sure tasted real good!
After a long scenic uphill drive, we arrive at our homestay/hotel. We had seen pictures of it earlier but the place is just so much more beautiful in real. Pictured above is a view of the Karapuzha Dam from our property. The rooms are comfy, equipped with all amenities and a view like that. Lunch is served to us on the portico. Food, cooked by a local villager, smells of herbs and spices and tastes heavenly. After a big meal, we decide to take a stroll around the property. The estate manager tell us that they have a cave room and a small natural pond, so we decide to check these out as well.
The stay was memorable; staff was friendly telling us stories about how this property came about, they cooked us some great dishes and the view in the morning was just so pretty. We had a good experience and even though we didn't see any wildlife apart from the stay deer/wild boar, we are surely going to come back to this place! Kudos to the owners and staff for being so hospitable!
