Why Wayanad this time?

Wayanad is just 100 km away from our place and we are visiting this place for the very first time. 

Route [Thalaserry- Wayanad]


Travel Duration & Stay

As we all know, Wayanad is an offbeat destination. But there is something we need to know about this place. This top-notch destination is actually a district divided into three towns namely Kalpetta, Sultan Bathery & Manathavady. So we travelled to this serene district by road and it took us approximately 2.30hrs to reach. And we found our home at DJ River Meadows. The majestic Kabini river is running as the backdrop of this resort which itself is a major highlight of this property. If you are someone who is looking out to save BIG and experience close to nature, then this one for you.

Good Food Good life as told by "Nestle". The most significant part of ending your day whilst during the trip is to have a sumptuous meal. So we fueled for dinner at Kerala Cafe hotel, Kattukalam which is around 10 mins from the resort.  The food served here is the most affordable and lip-smacking. Also, there is no need to compromise on the quality, as the restaurant maintains the highest quality standard.


Places of our interest

Since this was a very short stay and considering the current pandemic condition, we made our visits very minimal. Did you ever happen to ride into the jungle in the dark? Here we spotted a herd of elephants, wild boars & buffaloes. Investing 30 minutes for a Jungle ride is worth the experience. We walked towards "Koodalkadavu" which is the meeting point of two iconic rivers "Manathavady" & "Panamaram" which is an again enthralling experience and it took us around 5 mins to reach here from our place of stay. Not that all, we always believed, one would attain better knowledge about a place only when interacting with the residents. So we paced into one of their houses, where a resident was happy enough to show us the types of equipment utilised by his ancestors for survival. Also, there is Kuruva Island which I was eagerly planning to visit, unfortunately being an ecologically sensitive centre, entry to Kuruva Island still remains restricted.   

From mountains, waterfalls, lakes, viewpoints & tea plantations, Wayanad is an exotic mix of all these.
