Experiential Holiday in Wayanad

A 2 Nights / 3 Days Tour
Tour Highlights

  • Easy walk through paddy fields and forest alongside the Kabini river, encapsulating the best of traditional, little ex-plored Wayanad.
  • An amazing walk into the Western Ghats with superb views of the entire district (in lieu of above, for those who would like something a bit more challenging)
  • Time to cover well-known sightseeing spots (if you dont wish to hike)

Day-wise Itinerary Detail

Arrive in Wayanad. Check in and rest of day at leisure.

While you certainly have the option of chilling out in the resort itself (the views over the lake are indeed lovely), we strongly recommend venturing out – Wayanad is a place to be experienced and not just seen. You can always schedule your Ayurveda massage before or after the day’s outdoor program.

Below, we present 3 options. Feel free to choose any one of these, depending on interest and ability.

Option 1 (Gentle walk with a superb ela sadya lunch)

After breakfast, we’ll head west to the Kuruva islands (~1hr) for a half day walk amongst tribal paddy fields and communities. See https://muddyboots.in/trails/the-wayanad-highlands/hiking/peace-on-the-kabini/ for details. Lunch will be a traditional veg affair served on banana leaves (‘ela sadya’), after which we will drive back to the resort. We expect to be back at the resort by early evening.

Option 2 (Slightly Challenging hike up a hill)

Depart after an early breakfast for a fantastic trek into the Banasura range, part of the mighty Western Ghats. The drive to the trek start point takes about an hour. The initial portion of the hike is through plantations, which then opens out into the grasslands. We will have a packed lunch and take a break at Frog Rock, which offers beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. The return trail makes its way through shola thickets and in the right season, offers a secluded pretty waterfall, just perfect for splashing around. More details at https://muddyboots.in/trails/the-wayanad-highlands/hiking/rambles-at-the-demons-feet-2/. Return to the resort by early evening

Option 3 (Leisure Sightseeing)

A drive around Wayanad taking in popular sightseeing spots such as en-uru, Karapuzha dam, Pookode lake and Edakkal caves. We’ll leave after breakfast and return by early evening. We can also include a ride on one of our ziplines, either at Banausura or near Vythiri.

You may wish to schedule an Ayurveda massage before you have breakfast and checkout.

A variety of accommodation options at various budgets are available. These include homestays, serviced villas, budget resorts and premium luxury resorts.
