Nestled among the mountains of Western ghats lies Wayanad, one of the most loveliest hill stations of Kerala. This green paradise is located at a distance of 76 km from Kozhikode. The hills, rocks and valleys, which give shape to the very unique terrain of Wayanad provide for exceptional adventure experiences. Mountains and forests intersperse to create numerous outback trails, trekking routes and opportunities for other adventure sports. With vast areas still unexplored, Wayanad is truly an adventurescape waiting to be discovered. Wayanad lies at an altitude varying from 700 - 2100 metres above the sea level. Sightseeing includes: Pookot Lake, Chembra Peak, Meenmutty falls, Soochippara Falls, Banasura sagar Dam, Edakkal caves, Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary at Muthanga & Tholpetty, Pakshipathalam, Kuruva Island, Thirunelly temple, etc

In a world of sound and fury signifying nothing, an escape to some lively, green, soothing experiences will be quite refreshing as well as rejuvenating. As your vehicle enters Wayanad, the evergreen, idyllic, charming hill district of Kerala, you will be convinced that you have chosen the right place. Located at an altitude ranging from 700 to 2,100 metres above sea level, Wayanad has subtropical savannas, evergreen verdant spice plantations and rolling paddy fields.

This time, let us have a trip to some of the aqua tourism destinations of Wayanad. Kalpetta, the district headquarters of Wayanad is the most convenient and comfortable place to stay back and explore these destinations. If you come via Kozhikode, passing Thamarassery churam, the mountain path, drive 12 more kilometers to reach Kalpetta. This is one of the major towns in Wayanad, the others being Mananthavady and Sultan Bathery. Abundant in tea and coffee plantations, Kalpetta offers good accommodation facilities as well. Travelling 15 kilometers from Kalpetta, you will reach Pookkot Lake, a perennial fresh water lake, nestled among wooded hills. You can explore this vast, blue lake better in motor boats, with feasting eyes on the lush green vegetation on the shores. There are also an aquarium and a spice emporium to drop by.
