Wayanad, hidden within the dense Western Ghats, is one of Kerala’s best kept secrets. The name ‘Wayanad’ comes from ‘Vayal Nadu’, or land of paddy fields. It conjures up images of wide open spaces, covered with rice fields, but Wayanad is anything but that. Paddy fields are, of course, predominantly visible, but massive boulders rise intermittently between them, making the landscape a lot more interesting. Then there are mountains, tea estates, and coffee plantations, and enclosing all of them, a dense jungle! From these hills flow two perennial rivers―Vythiri and the Kabini, both of which merge further downstream with Kaveri, but here, they not only make the land extremely fertile, but also provide us lots of opportunities for adventure! Natural beauty is what makes Wayanad remarkable, but also interesting is its cultural and historical heritage. From prehistoric cave drawings to medieval temples, stories of war and the freedom struggle, there is much to explore and enjoy in Wayanad.
