About Wayanad

Edakkal caves

Etchings found on the walls of these caves have drawn the serious attention of archeologists and historians worldwide. It is assumed that the Edakkal had been inhabited at various stages in history. A telescope installed by the DTPC that offers a panoramic view of the surrounding country is another attraction.

Wayanad heritage museum

Located in the town of Ambalavayal, this museum is home to an interesting collection of artifacts that shed light on the history, culture and heritage of the Wayanad region. Those include headgear, weapons, pottery, and various objects associated with tribal life. A series of pictorial rock edicts reffered to as Hero stones, memorise a bygone age of valiant warriors

Phantom rock

Located close to Ambalavayal town, Phantom Rock, named so because of its skull head shape, is locally called Cheengery Mala. The immediate surroundings offer excellent photo opportunities.

Karapuzha dam

The large irrigation based dam site is set amidst picturesque surroundings. It is another fine venue for picnics.

Banasura Dam

Considered to be the largest earth dam in India, the Banasura project precincts are an ideal starting point for treks to the Banasura Peak. An interesting feature is a set of islands that were formed when the reservoir submerged the surrounding areas.

Muthanga wild life sanctuary

Spread over a vast area, Muthanga is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Region. It's a rain forest reserve connected to two-major sanctuaries-Bandipur National Park in Karnataka and Mudhumalai Sanctuary in Tamilnadu.

Sunrise valley

As the name suggests, Sunrise Valley is a great place to watch the rising and setting sun amidst dramatic mountain scenery. The place also offers a panoramic view of the valley beneath with the river Chaliyar meandering gracefully.

Pookot lake

The fresh water lake nested above wooded hills, is the only one of its kind in Kerala. It is one of Wayanad's top visitor draws.

kanthampara

A beautiful waterfall about 30 mtrs in height. Relatively smaller than Sentinel Rock Falls, and rather less frequented Kanthanpara and its surroundings offer a very pleasant site.

Soochipara

Away from the chaotic cacophony of city life, harbouring nature's rare exotic species of birds, orchids and herbs is an uninhabited island spread across 950 acres of evergreen forest.

Kuruva Island

The fresh water lake nested above wooded hills, is the only one of its kind in Kerala. It is one of Wayanad's top visitor draws.

Chembra peak

At 2100 metres, the spectacular Chembra Peak located towards the southern part of Wayanad is the tallest summit in the region. Climbing this peak is a challenging endeavour and would take a full day.

Neelimala

The summit of this hill affords a great view of the cascading Meenmutty falls and the beautiful valley in its foreground.

Chain tree

Legend has it that an Adivasi youth named Karinthandan was instrumental in guiding the British Engineer through the difficult mountain terrain into Wayanad. Eager to take credit for the discovery, the engineer conveniently killed his guide, whose soul, according to the legend, constantly haunted subsequent travellers. It is believed that a priest chained the troublesome spirit onto this tree and hence the name the Chain Tree.

When you pack your bags to head back home the lines that will be resonating in your mind will be “and miles to go before I sleep,……,as there is always much to discover, to enjoy and to relax. You will surely fall short of days as all the days you spend here will not be enough for you to explore this little piece of land in the heart of forest, so very different from the world outside.
