Set on the sole plateau of Kerala on the Western Ghats, Wayand is rightly called the Green Paradise. Untouched woods, misty mountains, vast orchards of spices and long spread Coffee plantations make it one of the best holiday destinations in India. In addition there are numerous wildlife sanctuaries, reserves and national parks in Wayanad. Adding to all the natural beauty, Wayanad also has India’s largest earth dam and Asia’s second-largest earth dam, Banasura Sagar Dam. Hiking, mountaineering, rock climbing, rappelling, camping, and many more adventurous activities can also be done.
The nearest airport is Kannur, around 88 kms away and the Kozhikode railway station is the nearest railway station around 85 kms away
