Wayanad visit

It was a great experience coming to Wayanad. Though it was raining, it was great fun travelling to beautiful places in Wayanad. We missed couple of sites as they were closed due to some reason. Missed Wayanad wild Safari as well. Will try and make it next time. The people here are very good and hospitable. Great place to visit . . Will recommend others to come here as it is soothing and relaxing.

A nice Town and Cash driven economy!

Kalpetta is the district headquarters of the Wayanad district in Kerala and has a pleasant climate. The importance of this town in your itinerary is that you can make this a center for exploring the district and its varied attractions. All attractions are within driving distance from this place which means you can enjoy the facilities of a good stay here during night and the sightseeing during the day.
The food available is less of vegetarian here and in fact the town has only one vegetarian restaurant which is full of customers at any time. Tourists from Bangalore and Mysore throng here for a week end get away. The town and its cuisine have a strong Malabar culture and you can enjoy their polite hospitality.
One important point to note for those planning your shopping here is that you have to carry a lot of cash as credit cards are not accepted almost in any establishment. We had to cancel our shopping for this very reason. When asked why they don't accept credit cards, they avoid giving a reply and politely demand cash!
Overall we had a good time at this nice little town and the excursions to the nearby attractions were really enjoyable.
