Kerala Holiday – Take a Trip to Enchanting Wayanad, a Queen among Hill Stations
Kerala is known for a lot of things. However, the hill stations of Kerala are a world apart from any other hill station in the world. They are very unique in appearance, distinct in ambiance and unsurpassed in visual beauty. Among the many hill stations that are present in the state, one of the most beautiful is Wayanad. Exclusive Kerala tour packages to Wayanad can be a great idea for people who require emotional, physical and spiritual rejuvenation.
Wayanad is located around 2000 meters above sea level and the elevations of the place vary between 700 meters and 2100 meters. The place is characterized by paddy fields, acres of coffee and tea plantations and mountain lakes. Kerala hotels in Wayanad are set into such picturesque settings. A stay in these Kerala hotels is good enough to rejuvenate even the most tired souls. A trip to Kerala cannot be deemed complete if you do not include a day or two in Wayanad in your Kerala tour packages. Being bordered by the Nilgiri hills, the Ghats of the Coorg district and the pretty places such as Calicut and Kannur, Wayanad is a place that is truly blessed in all regards.
In the past, Wayanad was a native tribal land. If you take a tour of the district, you can still find a lot of tribes such as the Adiyas, Kurumbas and Paniyas. While many of them have now adapted to modern ways of living, there are still tribal pockets that maintain their old lifestyle. All you have to do is take a walk along the winding roads of the district to discover the beauty of tribal living. It makes for a very unique holiday experience for you. So, choose Kerala holiday packages that give you a tour of these places so that you can take back some unique memories of Kerala.
There are almost innumerable places that you can visit in Wayanad. You can begin with the Muttunga Wildlife Sanctuary. Known for spotting elephants, deers, bears and tigers, this forest reserve is also a trekking sanctuary. However, do not wade off into the forest on your own. You should have a guide with you so that you are not lost. The forest predominantly consists of dry deciduous trees. A very unique spotting of the forest, although extremely rare, is the white elephants. They are not completely white but a shade of very light grey, which makes them look almost white from a distance. They are a real sight to behold. So, when you visit the sanctuary as part of Kerala holiday packages, keep your fingers crossed.
There are abundant water falls that you can see during your trip to Wayanad. Suchipara waterfalls, Kanthanpara waterfall and Meenmutty falls are some of the most famous and are breathtakingly beautiful. Located in forest settings, these white cascading falls are definitely awe inspiring.
Edakkal Caves is another must-visit place in Wayanad Kerala holiday packages. Believed to be home to historic tribes, these caves are located high up a hill which you need to trek. On the rocks of the cave, you can find pictographic depiction of human and animal figures that are supposed to tell a story. The place has a mystique that has baffled archeologists for ages.
So, include all these places in Kerala tour packages, book into some great Kerala hotels and enjoy your stay in God’s own country.
