Teagardens, Forest, River, Birds, Coffee & Spice Plantation
This day-trail is highly recommended for families with children and for small groups, with an additional option for a traditional Kerala lunch.
Drive over to the enchanting teagardens of Pozhuthana, some of which are the oldest plantations in Wayanad, and squeezed between mist clad mountains, miles of tea carpeted slopes and a winding river.
The day will start with a hike into the forests, heading towards a mountain stream. There are many irresistible swimming holes that one can spend time at.
In the afternoon you will get onto the cycles and pedal down one of the many scenic trails either on smooth roads or mixing roads with mud trails based on your fitness and preference.
At the end of the cycling reach the river, where bamboo rafts will await you with river guides and life jackets. Get midstream and pole, row, swim or wade your way to the landing point.
Depart by evening after a hot tea from a local tea shop and head back to your accommodations.
