Wayanad

Certain destinations are so unique that the moment you step foot, you are taken at once into to a dreamlike paradise! I love designing unique offbeat packages for clients who are willing to go a little further. A little further away from the touristy destinations. A little further into wilderness and tranquillity. A little further into hidden village stays where locals put their heart and soul to welcome you! So here I am sharing few pictures of the unique landscapes, homes, cuisine and people of Wayanad, taken by 2 passionate travellers who gifted themselves a birthday gift of travel. Travel into the hidden corners of God’s Own Country, Kerala:

 

1. FIND OUT WHY WATERFALLS ARE THE LIFE OF WAYANAD

Wayanad is surrounded by breathtaking waterfalls like Meenmuthy Waterfall, Soochipara Waterfalls etc. If you decide to visit Wayanad in the monsoon season, just like our clients; you will be blessed to see the waterfalls in full flow. The best part about visiting Meenmuthy Waterfalls is that one needs to indulge in a nice 2km trek to reach it. Also, don’t forget to enjoy the beautiful drive on the way to these waterfalls, lush green on both sides!
